Kadey Krogen 58 – Building Cruising Confidence As A Couple

TrawlerFest University – Baltimore

This couples-oriented two-day seminar happens on the waterways of America! We offer tricks and tips on boat handling with an emphasis on team work. The husband and wife team of Captains Chris and Alyse Caldwell will teach you how to formulate a plan and effectively communicate together while cruising.

Please scroll down for more details and photos of the latest fun two-day couples cruising class in Baltimore. We are aboard a terrific trawler, the Kadey Krogen 58. Are you a FaceBook regular to see even more pics? 

Each couple is given the opportunity to be both the ‘captain’ and ‘first mate” before switching roles. Training aboard includes: 

Communicating, Vessel Systems Review, Docking, Anchor Techniques, Basic Maintenance, Navigation and Trip Planning. In addition to boat handling, these are all important experiences to master as a couple.

Before starting the engines, we cover all lifestyle systems that make boating comfortable in this Kadey Krogen trawler. Staterooms, a modern galley and where to stow everything are some of the many features to learn about. The pilot house and flybridge allow us to review the essentials of navigation come rain or shine. Throughout the two day course we share what works in the real world…and sometimes what doesn’t.
