    About sevon years ago I met a kid that lived in seal Beach and worked at the fuel dock he was 16 at the time, I took him fishing/hooping and encouraged him to get into the industry anyway he could, I talk to him on the phone a couple of days ago and he’s operating tugs and other equipment in Long Beach Harbor making bank!! Passion and perseverance pays off if you want to do what you love🤙

    California Boaters Card is mandatory.
    USCG class highly recommend.
    Complete knowledge of any and all intake and outlets in hull absolutely necessary, especially under water line.
    At your age fishing is secondary. Learn the boat. Learn the rules. Learn the responsibility of operating a watercraft.
    Remember, if your the skipper, all others on the vessel are your responsibility.
    Their safety is in your hands!
    As far as fishing, that’s all gravy.
    🤙🏽

    Make sure your parents get US Tow or similar, Breaking down on the water is a bitch if you don't have Towing Insurance

    Complacency was my biggest enemy and the ocean is a dangerous place full of wonders but If your driving everyone and everything on the boat is your responsibility.

    One precaution to consider before and when lifting a boat to a trailer is to periodically inspect your boat and trailer to make lifting or towing more manageable and safe. Only perform lifting your boat from a trailer when you are capable of doing so.

    Just ask your parents for as much gas money as you can and go whenever you can. When I was like 14 me n my friend would borrow his or my dads truck and boat and launch out of MDR all the time.
