Short Stories by Don Robertson
First Mate Book Cover

The reason you need First Mate 101 is to learn what you need to know and how to do it easier. Stop worrying and start enjoying boating!

Inspect Yourself

Inspect It Yourself and When to Hire a Surveyor.
I can't tell you how many times I've seen experienced boaters miss important (and expensive!) details when checking out a boat. Their experience isn't inspecting boats for a living--mine is.

Dock Cruise

Don't reinvent the wheel. Learn from a couple who has done it all. Covers buying, enjoying, docking, tying, anchoring, ramping, dinghying, using knots, conquering wakes, communicating and docking while cruising.

If you would like your boat, your business or organization listed here, contact us by Email or at the address below. There is a rates pointer in each section with instructions and costs.
