He is the founder and president of Maritime Smarts, the innovative marine education company dedicated to creating a better method of learning recreational boating. His wealth of information and insight is invaluable. It is his desire to pass on this knowledge, so that the most common and uncommon dangers in the water may be avoided. Few things can be more intimidating to any boater than the systems of buoys and beacons that decorate our waterways. Making sense of it all isn't really hard once you know how to look at the system from a different perspective. By looking at the big picture and breaking the system down, you'll get a better understanding of just why these markers and buoys are where they are and have a better handle on how to make sense of them.
