Captain Carl holds an unlimited tonnage Masters License.   During the winter months he is a Captain aboard a 900 foot container ship, the APL Belgium, that sails from the West Coast to Dutch Harbor Alaska, Japan, South Korea, and China, stopping at various ports in between.

Captain Chris has been running boats out of Saquatucket Harbor on Cape Cod for over 30 years.  He holds a 100 Ton Masters License from the US Coast Guard. He is an electrical engineer with experience in marine systems. He is the founder of HMS, a local marine repair service, and has been involved with the systems design of custom yachts.
