My name is Captain Dan Pitman and I learned to sail keel boats at the Naval War College in Rhode Island. I am an experienced sailor who has spent the last 20 + years sailing the US East Coast from Florida up to New England. My trips have been both outside and inside the ICW. I have also captained boats in Belize, Grenada, the Bahamas, the B.V.I.s, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. I am a USCG licensed 50 ton master, with AUX Sail endorsements. In addition to my USCG License I am also a Retired US Army Chief Warrant Officer (CW3). My 25 years in the Army was served as a diesel and power generation supervisor and mechanic. I also hold a General Class (HAM) Radio License (KB3LVB) with the FCC. My current homeport is the Upper Chesapeake Bay, conveniently located in the middle of the East Coast.
If you are looking for an all around Captain with a complete understanding of boat systems please consider my services.
Rates are available upon request but typically start at $300 a day plus expenses. For more information please email me at – Capt.Dan@PitmanMarine.com or call (401) 236-6770
