The guy docked next to me has a brand new 30 foot Sea Ray and is looking for someone to show him how to run it. He's never owned a boat before. I don't think money is an issue.

I say hayll yeah!! If you are going to do it, do it right (even though that boat would not have been my choice).

Mont,

If this guy still needs help getting started, let me know. I have several guys working with me who have 100 ton+ licenses who would be willing to help out.

This is a classic 2cool post. The moderator (by chance) posts someone needs help. The first two posts are in complete contrast. One questions whether a guy should buy such a large boat as his first and says "ouch" as if something bad is going to happen. The second post, first of all (properly) puts a question mark on "Ouch" and says "hayll yeah" obviously supporting the purchase. I would like to see the boat the first poster has.

Thanks for the posts and PM's. My new neighbor, Bryan, came over and introduced himself. I was just finishing up installing a new windlass and we talked for a bit. I don't have the insurance or correct licenses to be able to help him so that's why I asked around. I am going down to the harbor in a bit to pass along the info. There's nothing worse than having a brand new toy that you can't play with, and Bryan was smart enough to ask for help learning how.

Thats good to hear Mont. When I lived aboard in a marina, we saw many weekend yahoos get boozed up and think they can handle a twin screw boat in 15 mph winds.

Sounds like Bryan has his head on straight.

You're still a little green behind the ears around here,......

Captain Larry does a lot of that type stuff at South Shore. He does a lot of maintenance and runs boats to the shipyard and such. He will do some of the teaching bit.
