Awesome ASA class this past week!

I had a GREAT 101-103 class this week. Joe and Karen worked with me all the way through and are our newest 101 and 103 grads. Joe had a huge passion to learn and it was apparent he did! Karen did an awesome job on all counts but especially when using hand signals to maneuver to a mooring ball. Her signals were crisp and perfect! Dave, a new small boat owner completed 101 and will go into his new adventure well prepared. And John, leaving for Germany for 5 years, came in ready and left well prepared. I wish all my students were as well prepared as these folks!

WTH is a WAFI?!?

Who knows what a WAFI is? Let me know this week in the comments. I’ll reveal it later!

Another 101-104 class & YouTube commercials

This week Captain Norm and I are teaming up with a huge group, 11 family members in all, for a 101-104. It will be a challenge for all with a group that big! Hope they read their books!

Look for our new You Tube commercials coming very soon. You can see them on Sailing Florida’s YouTube channel and at On the Water With Captain Frank’s YouTube channel. I think I look especially dapper, move over Tom Cruise!

 One drink is good

Now Available: The BS Button for Boats!

So, I have finally figured out how to make millions! I am proud to announce the now available BS button. Easily installed on any boat!

Docking made easy with a BS button!

As you can see from the before and after photos here. One press of the BS button and your 40+’ boat can be shrunk so that anyone, even a four year old can dock like a pro.

Before installing the BS button

It works on any boat!

The BS button works on all types of boats from trawlers to sport-fishing boats, and can be installed in just minutes without any tools.

One note of caution: Make sure when you press it you are standing in the middle of the boat!

Stay tuned for more details…On the Water…With Captain Frank
