As a successful business owner in the Gladstone area over almost twenty years. As a father, grandfather and child, I would like to acknowledged the support that my parents, children and wife and others have given me to run with this new business venture. Remember you only live once...
As a child my parents always gave me a real solid grounding, encouragement, recognition and above all an unconditional love and support, introduced me to the Australian Bush and camping, taught me that "I can't" is a negative limiting ability only know in our own minds. About being fair, honest and respectful of others and the environment - Thank you Geoff & Norma Smith.
My children and their respective partners have been very supportive of my adventures with running crab pots, sand flies, mosquitoes, driving our boats, having to push our boats whilst crabbing or Yellowpatch, Dad towing a boat everywhere and cleaning boats, fish and crabs - Thanks Guys.
My poor suffering wife for putting up with all of my crazy ideas and impulsive hobbies that consume me,
having to go boating in the worst possible weather, because the good days were for going out fishing camping and exploring our wonderful area. Not always understanding my visions and what I can see, opportunities, our boats always consuming the $$$$ that they do and my pigheadedness. She believes that "BOAT" should be spelt "BOATT" because nothing every only costs $1000.00 - Thank you Kathy Smith.
My other great love has been the marine environment starting with a fourteen foot aluminum Quintrex tinny with a fifteen hourse power engine that had more holes in it than aluminum, my good mates father allowed me to pay the boat off over a period of time so I could afford it, he has been also a great mentor to me with an unlevelled knowledge of the local marine environment - Thank you Jim Purcell.
So the launching of eMarine-Training-Hire-Charter has been announced to the general public today the 8th January 2018 from our family to yours we would like to welcome you to our "Next Big Thing".
