Owner:Dale

Captain Dale is licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard. I take this role quite seriously with my first and foremost duty to keep you safe. My second and more enjoyable role is to share with you my passion for boating and Lake Michigan fun. For background, I'm a Computer Science Engineer with an MBA and have worked in executive roles for companies like Microsoft, Oracle, Unisys, Kemper Financial Services and a number of startup companies. Between May 1 and October 31 every year, you'll find me on the water somewhere making the most of life (in between client calls).
