My Florida Sea Captain Hiring Tip's. Most often boat owners can move their boats themselves. But as a Florida, Yacht, Ships Captain, I can relocate your vessel which can eliminate the stress of the relocation at an efficient price.
These are a few of the certain rules which are offered to boat owners who are considering relocation of their vessels for seasonal or long term usages.
Rule 1. Always verify that the captain(s) are licensed. Go to the National Maritime Center Website, http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/ and then to Credential Verification The captain will need to give you his document number and last name..
Rule 2. Always request a Sea Captain for a contract. This contract is confidential. Make sure this contract identifies the financial costs that you are willing to pay. List all the specific or general work the captain is required to complete.
Rule 3. In writing, clearly state your objectives and what you require. Clients should indicate a start "date - possible end date of a delivery.
Rule 4. If you're hiring an Sea Captain always, in specific terms require he/she notify you of the progress of the delivery. This can be done by phone or email.
Rule 5. Upon request and during the delivery, profession Sea Captains will most likely equip your vessel with their personal GPS tracking system. This should be a real time GPS system where the owner can access the internet and located his /her vessel in real time.
Rule 6. Always insist on CONFIDENTIALITY in regards to your contract. It is unprofessional for any Sea Captain to give a clients name or personal information to strangers or his friends.
Rule 7. When you sign an "delivery or recovery contract" you are required to pay the fees in advance. Inquire if their may be addition fees to include, dockage, fuel, air travel, or other costs.
Rule 8. Reliable Sea Captains will never guarantee you that damages will never occur. But this issues should be discussed by both the captain and client. Both should agree that certain conditions, weather etc. that the vessel should/will not be subject to.. i.e. hurricane winds, snow storms, high sea.
Rule 9. Most professional Sea Captains should not references their clients' without consent from the client. The sea captain must get the clients permission and obtain authorization from the client before their name is used for a recommendation. Do not be fooled in believing some Sea Captains utilizes a corporate name or profession person for a reference.
Rule 10. If hired, BEFORE - DURING - AND AT THE END OF THE SEA VOYAGE, DELIVERY, ask, OR require the Sea Captain to take a time stamped video or picture of both the exterior and interior of the vessel. A picture is worth a thousand words and you want your vessel in an undamaged condition.
