Yacht Delivery from Gulfport, MS to Kemah, TX. While on boat delivery from Boston, MA to Middle River on the Chesapeake Bay, on a 41 Cruisers, I received a call from my new client. Tommy had been looking for a captain to help him and a friend move his ‘new to him’ 41DS Hunter from Gulfport, MS to Kemah, TX in the Houston area. After agreeing on a price and date, we were all set to meet in Gulfport to start the delivery.

I was recently contacted by a new boat owner to help him move his boat from Sanibel Island on the West Coast of Florida to Jacksonville. In my planning we were going to travel through Fort Myers, and then proceed through the lock system of the Okeechobee waterway. Our trip was planned to go through Lake Okeechobee and then on to Stuart Florida. Unfortunately as we approached the Port Myaca lock, the starboard side engine started to overheat.
Though not a requirement for recreational boaters, having a captain’s license is a great way to boost your resume and show others that you possess expert-level knowledge of maritime rules and regulations. The license only becomes necessary if you get hired to navigate an auxiliary powered boat in USCG-patrolled waters.
