Captain Karl Weber
100 Ton Master with Sail Endorsement
I have always had a love for boats and the ocean. Our family owned boats when I was growing up. Two of my uncles are boaters. One owned a sailboat he kept in Marsh Harbour in the Bahamas my whole childhood. He taught me how to sail on a sunfish when I was a teenager. Several times our family rented sailboats to cruise in the US and British Virgin Islands. I became a professional mariner in 2010. I started out driving boats to take people scuba diving and snorkeling. Delivering boats has given me the opportunity to travel to many new places. I’ve met lots of wonderful people and made many new friends. I love what I do and can’t wait to see where my next delivery takes me!
First Mate Briana Whalen
I’m just a girl from Colorado that fell in love with a boat captain. I love the way the deck of a boat feels under my feet and watching the sun sink low into the water. I never dreamed I’d be delivering boats for a living but I love the challenge. It’s always a joy meeting the owners and spending time with them on the journey. I have a masters degree in toxicology but now I have a hobby working on diesel engines.
Captain Greig Martin
100 Ton Master with Tow Endorsement
I have been a captain since June 2014. My expertise at that time was mainly focused on the inland rivers and waterways system, specifically on the Mississippi River, as I was a captain with Towboat U.S. in the Alton, Illinois, area. In 2016 I moved to Key Largo to captain a private snorkel boat for Pennekamp State Park and continued with them until August of 2017. In addition to my experience at Pennekamp, I have previously worked for Seatow Key Largo, and I'm currently with Seatow Islamorada. I also work with Conch Republic Divers in Islamorada, where I regularly operate both of their vessels: a 30-foot Island Hopper and a 46-foot Twin Engine Newton.
