ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 21, 2010 – Are you buying a boat in a distant state and need to get her home? Or, have you thought about brushing up on your boat handling skills with some on-the-water tutoring from a pro? The online Professional Captains Locator Service at www.BoatUS.com/procaptains makes it easy for boat owners to find on-the-water transportation services and instruction with US Coast Guard-licensed delivery captains.
“Hiring a professional captain can solve a lot of problems,” says BoatUS Supervisor of Special Programs Kristin Loyd. “A hired captain can save you time by moving your boat north to its summertime cruising grounds, or simply deliver it downriver a few miles so you don’t have to take a day off from work. And for those boaters in hurricane zones, our Locator will help you get plans in place to move your boat to the safety of a hurricane hole, if needed,” she added.
The no-cost service allows boaters to search by region and includes credentials such as USCG licenses held as well as any special endorsements, knowledge of familiar waters or types of boats, locations served, full contact information and the types of delivery services offered, including instruction and hurricane hole deliveries.
To find a delivery captain near you, go to www.BoatUS.com/procaptains .
