I am a Civil Engineer by day, but boating is my passion.  I currently hold a U.S. Coast Guard 25 Ton Masters License (Great Lakes and Inland Waters) and OUPV Operator License (Near Coastal).  My training was completed at the U.S. Maritime Academy in Chicago, IL.  I have been boating for 15 years and currently own a 33' Sea Ray Sundancer.  My previous boat was an Active Thunder (High performance offshore).  I also have experience working on survey boats in the Great Lakes.

The boat is commercially licensed by the City of Chicago and State of Illinois and I am a U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain which limits me to 6 paying passengers. This is the same certification for most pleasure boat captains and they should abide by the same restrictions.

The 300 Sundancer offers good space both inside and out for cruising the city or lounging in the playpen. An ultra leather double helm bench seat makes cruising comfortable and the lower cockpit area can easily be turned into a large sun pad with filler cushions...great for sun lovers. Down below the cabin offers a good flow and plenty of light. An ultra leather lounge is located directly across from the galley. The boat features two refrigerators, one in the cabin and one on deck. An extra large swim platform provides even more space to play.
