This beautiful Kadey Krogen 48 NorthSea shipped over from The Pacific North West into Fort Lauderdale where a family of four anxiously awaited her arrival. Before she's completely outfitted with Air Conditioning, Captain Chris Yacht Services takes this Father/Son crew out for an introductory training.

Here's a few photos of our time aboard.

Captain Chris and this Father/Son team oversee the launch. Lots of photos.
Keenan checks out the crawl space under the pilot house helm station. Learning about the hydraulic reservoir and fuse panel is an important part of understanding the on-board systems.
Standing in the master stateroom bilge, Michael gets a hands-on tour of the holding tank system, level gauge, vacuum generator, vented loop, y-valve and overboard macerator.
Michael learns about the engine room hydraulic stabilizer system.
Father and son check out the engine heated water heater. A flashlight helps when you are poking around the below deck spaces.
Checking on board inventory. Having spare parts aboard can help keep you moving along when you are cruising. We discover that we need a few spare impellers for the just-in-case.
Anchor practice makes perfect.
Helping the last of the secondary anchor chain come aboard. One wildcat and two anchors require you to be creative.
Keenan's turn to pick up the anchor.
Keenan learns how a bowline works wells on a piling. An inverted loop would choke down on the piling and be difficult to remove when it's time to go.
