“He (Captain Scott) left us with a much greater comfort level than when we began.  We would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in becoming more “Boat Savvy.””

“I needed help docking, and Captain Phil showed me how to dock with wind, current, in crowded marinas, and everywhere in between. It was an excellent experience and I’ll be taking more lessons.”

“I upgraded to a larger vessel and wanted to feel comfortable behind the helm. Our Captain was very experienced with my type of vessel and gave us a thorough training on everything from handling, steering, throttle control, maintenance, and using the electronics.
