Hailing from the mountains of East Tennessee, Captain Gary is the embodiment of southern hospitality. His friendly smile is as inviting as the ocean on a warm summer evening. But don’t let that fool you, he’s quite the prankster.
He has always been fascinated by the ocean and to date has rebuilt four private yachts including a 42ft steel sloop and his current lady, Sapphire. He has been involved in the construction of some high profile tall ships on the East coast of the US- Spirit of South Carolina in Charleston, SC, and Oliver Hazard Perry in Newport, Rhode Island (Chief Engineer).
A self-professed foodie, Gary believes the best way to explore a new destination is by tasting the local dishes on offer, one table at a time.
