    I can guarantee one thing. No matter how much training someone or a group of crew have, there will ALWAYS be conflict and drama when you live in close quarters and work long hours.

    Sounds like a great idea, but a trained crew who get along together could make Below Deck quite boring , what in the world will Lee do with himself ???.

    That's a negative captain. No picking!

    I will volunteer to train that, as long as I get to pick the students I train.

    I read their website. It sounds very comprehensive. Eight weeks of a bit of everything. Definitely filling a training void in Yachting skills and disciplines.
    I wish them the best and many years of good training.

    The current crop of crew entering our industry aren't prepared and don't have the work ethic. often struggling with basic social skills and any sort of an eye for detail.
    and 6 figures to start.

    That’s a great idea.
    Suppose with such a demand for quality crew members, plus Brian’s connections, he’ll have a great placement program in place also.
    Even matching personalities would be awesome.

    I just delivered boats for wealthy owners (me and a mate).
    Owners just wanted it at a specific destination when they arrived.
    So we’d deliver, fuel it up, clean her real good and hit the road.
    Then usually return her to home port a few months later.

    I can’t imagine the patience you must have dealing with owners and their friends/customers.
    No way that was for me

    Docking in real life and with the simulator
    Actually driving a boat

    So, this is a school to learn? Or a school to pass and get the Quals?
    It's like a M.P.T Skool?

    Some good mates have started a maritime training academy in Fort Lauderdale based on teaching new and upcoming crew all the necessary skills to join and succeed on a superyacht. I've worked with all of them but Brian has helped shape my career in such a positive way and has always been there for a phone call when I needed advise, needed to blow off steam about crew or if I just wanted a second set of eyes during tricky passage planning.

    The current crop of crew entering our industry aren't prepared and don't have the work ethic. often struggling with basic social skills and any sort of an eye for detail.

    They just want to go from deckie straight to captain without doing the hard yards. Hopefully this school can point them in the right direction and improve on our industry.

    The guys have put a lot of hard work into this academy and I truly hope they succeed 100%
