Real, Honest Sailing With a Great Lakes Captain

Synopsis:
Climb aboard and find out what it’s like to be the captain of a broad-shouldered ship on the Great Lakes today. It’s brawn measured in tons. It’s brains, as you handle a crew and computers. It’s strength in thousands of horsepower. It’s spectacle. It’s lore. It’s schedules. It’s plotting courses. It’s wind. It’s ice. It’s being on call 24/7 for weeks on end. It’s being away. It’s all that and more for Captain Gary W. Schmidt, veteran master of a muscular vessel with sweet moves. Here’s your access to real, honest sailing.
