Buying a boat is one thing.. operating it safely is another. There’s a LOT to learn.
In this video we sit down with Chris & Alyse Caldwell of and the Ask Captain Chris YouTube channel (
We were blessed to attend their 4-days of in person classroom instruction as part of our training & research process, and were super impressed with this duo. They lived as full time cruisers for 19 years before becoming instructors.
In this video they share how to determine what sort of training you need and what options are available. They also toss in a bunch of tips and tricks and advice on selecting a boat.
Ask Captain Chris offers in person training classes for cruisers, a DVD series, their free YouTube channel and in person on your boat training. (This is not a promotional video – we just really love these guys!)
Cherie & Chris have been full time technomads since 2006. In the winter we explore land in our 1961 GM 4106 bus conversion. In the spring/summer we move aboard our 1999 Bayliner 4788 slowly exploring America’s waterways along the Great Loop.
