Delivery Captain recommendation

I may be closing on a Mainship 34 mk1 soon. I will be bringing the boat from the upper Chesapeake to Rhode Island. My wife and I will be crew and are looking for a delivery captain with a patient teaching personality. Any recommendations would be great.

I am also experienced, professional with references, but I'm on the West Coast. If timing and cost worked out, I can be available. Please contact me directly for more information.

If you think the delivery over the water estimates are high, talk to a few trucking companies. We shipped a 1981, 34' Mainship. We did not have to remove the flybridge. Just a thought.

Send a private message through this forum to a member named Anode. Chip may be a pretty good fit for you.

Look up John Albertine in Annapolis. He taught me how to handle my then new to me 37' Newburyport trawler before we cruised her up from Annapolis to Wilson on Lake Ontario 2 years ago. He is very knowledgeable and patient. He gave me the confidence to do the job myself and took a personal interest in our voyage. Good luck!

Capt. Don Kull who frequents this forum would be perfect for this.

I don't think you'd get it thru Ct without removing the flybridge.

I'll second this recommendation for John. He gave my wife and I a half day of boat handling training that gave us the confidence to move our boat from Kent Island to Hampton. He was very patient and effective.
