What People Are Saying About Captain Chris Seminars

  • I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience I had at the Introduction to Boat Systems seminar. 2 days well spent and everyone should take advantage of the Boatyard tour. Not only did I learn how to deal with the various systems on my boat, you taught me how to “see” what I was “looking” at. I spent the next week on my boat with newfound confidence and a better understanding of the items I need to pay attention to. As someone who moved up from smaller outboard powered boats, I didn’t know what I didn’t know until I took this seminar. This should be mandatory training for anyone new to big boats.
  • I just completed both Captain Chris’ courses.  If you are going to “Loop” and are not an expert on large boats take these courses before you even look at your first boat. Not only will you gain a boatload of knowledge they are fun too!- John S
