Although I've become best known for my writings, consulting services, and speaking engagements, since 1976 I've been a jack of all trades in the boating industry. For TV and feature films, I've designed and constructed props and provided research, commentary, script review, and other serices dealing with all types of nautical and survival issues. In addition to my artwork and photographs, I offer books and other publications on survival, boating, and oceanic adventures. I and/or my colleagues consult with clients to help them find or design the right boat, prepare for voyaging, and enhance safety systems. We deliver technical presentations on a wide range of topics to sailors and entertain and enlighten audiences of all stripes with accounts of amazing life-changing voyages that offer applicable lessons for both businesses and individuals. We deliver boats and can accompany our more novice clients on early training passages.
