In the late 70s I was the Training commodore at San Diego Naval Sailing Club.
Was a Boatswain Mate in the Navy and worked commercially since retiring in Jan. '79. Once owned a Catalina 30, the wicked Ex sold it while I was working at sea.
Am now an instructor for those who want their 100/200 Master/Mates USCG licenses. And now looking for a live aboard Sail boat to travel with.
I figure that I'm as qualified as any of those civilian org's. Maybe more so...
But you know that Retired Boatswain Mates are very very knowledgable.

1600 Ton Master, 2nd Mate Unlimited Tonnage
