Imagine maneuvering and docking a 900+ foot ship. On March 17, 2014, 7:00 PM we are excited to welcome Captain Kevin Coulombe who captains a 983’ freighter for the Maersk shipping company. Captain Coulombe will speak on “Life at Sea in the Merchant Marines”
The ship transits between the east coast of the U.S. & the Middle East, via the Suez Canal. You will get a glimpse of what it is like to command and bear the responsibility for a 983-foot commercial ship. Since we are all Recreational Boaters, his insights into how we should conduct ourselves around a vessel like his should be very helpful! There will be lots of time for questions about VTS lanes, right of way, can you really see me in my 25 foot boat on your radar? pirates?! etc. Come prepared with your questions because now is your chance to get a peek into the world of commercial shipping and learn how to be a more prudent boater around large ships.
