Flagship Maritime......

Skip Anderson has just opened his new training center in Fife (next door to Tacoma)'s a teaser on what's to come...great work Skip!

The Flagship Maritime Training Center has opened for business just two doors away from West Marine in Fife (in the same building). We’re going to host an opening party of some sort in the weeks ahead, but while we’re still setting up shop, putting up signs, et cetera, you are all still welcome to stop by for a visit.

We signed the new lease on the Friday the 3rd, and started our first USCG-approved license training course for twelve students there on Monday evening the 6th. That course goes Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings for six weeks, so if you stop by on one of those nights, there’s a good bet you’ll see me there! (The instructor can’t play hooky)

Then yesterday (Saturday), we had 21 students onboard for a one-day WA State Safe Boater Exam Prep course – quite a lively group!

If you or your group would like some specialized training, or would simply like to use a centrally-located classroom for your own training (like Fred, from CYCT?), give me a holler. We’re just a minute off I-5 at Exit 136 – couldn’t be simpler. If you’ve visited West Marine in Fife, you’ve been by the space!

Best regards,

Congratulations on getting open. Got my 100 ton inland license back in 1984, one of the prouder days of my life.
