You are somewhat close. My background is the Expedition Cruise world. I have a few thousand miles running zodiacs in various corners of the world, from the ice of the Antarctic to reefs of Pacific...transporting guests ashore, or taking them on coastal cruises. Always fun in big ocean swells, have even done it up to a force 7! Lots of bringing boats into beaches in exciting conditions.
Anyway, so I have some friends who are just starting their careers...have done their RYA training, but are needing some more practical guidance that is industry specific (driving standing up, handling the bigger engine etc. etc) I I offered to try and share some of my experience and insights, if we can only find a suitable boat.
So do you have a commercial background too?
