Welcome Aboard

Who Is Captain Rick Anderau

To whom it may concern:

Captain Rick Having continuously owned and operated marine power vessels since 1980. I became a Coast Guard Licensed Captain, “Operator of Un-inspected Passenger Vessels,” in September 1995, and earned my “100 Ton Masters License” in September 1997 (last renewal in May 2018). In March 1998 I earned the commercial towing endorsement to my Masters license, and, I hold a current TSA TWIC Card.

In addition to Coast Guard licenses, I have held my “single engine – land” Pilot’s license since September 1988, licensed to operate an aircraft by the Federal Aviation Administration. In January of 2004 I also earned my “Class D” motor vehicle operators license from the State of Florida.

    Over the last thirty plus years I have operated hundreds of customer vessels, for many thousands of hours, on the waters in and around the State of Florida, the Islands of the Bahamas, and, the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. And, I have operated vessels of every make, size, and, description. I am intimately familiar with vessel operating systems, the rules of operation, and vessel navigation.
Because of my vessel operating skills and demeanor, I am in demand for “Hands-On” vessel operating instruction for multiple area boat brokers, dealers, and, insurers. Additionally, I am regularly called on to operate vessels for transport, shake down, sea trials, and, surveys. Annually I operate well over a hundred different vessels, for cumulative thousands of hours.

I am a proud military veteran and a member of the American Professional Captains Association, and, I will gladly provide personal and commercial references upon request.

Sincerely, Frederick “Rick” Anderau, Captain
