Growing up in Southern California, Colin was raised on the water. As a teenager, he regularly crewed on several different historic schooners. When he wasn’t sailing the schooners, he was racing (and always tweaking) his beloved Thistles. It wasn’t long before Colin understood that the sea was more than a hobby, it was his life’s passion. After obtaining his USCG Captain’s License (he holds a 100-ton master, with both power and sail endorsements), Colin began to split his time between teaching and deliveries. Today, Colin’s encyclopedic knowledge of the industry, power and sailboats, and nearly all marine systems is what sets him apart. Couple that with his tenacious commitment to customer service, and you’ll quickly see why so many people find Colin indispensable.
