Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas … Island Style

Port Lucaya … Island Style

If you like the Island Style then Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas is the place to visit.


Partially Laid Back Island, Partially Ft. Lauderdale Beach but with Crystal Clear Waters, Great Rum, Fantastic Conch Salad, Scuba Diving and Beaches, Port Lucaya is a great place to visit.

The People are super friendly and appreciate you being there.   The music is motivating.  In other words, it’s hard to stand still when that beat is going. Read the rest of this entry »

Ship That Yacht / Boat Delivery

You Want Your Trucked Boat Delivery To Go Where??

You have a boat or yacht.  It is in South Florida and you need it on a Lake in Ohio.  Your choices are:

  1. You could take it by water to the closest location and then have a helicopter pick it up and move it to the lake.  If you could get the permit for it, might cost as much as the yacht itself.
  2. You could also buy one on the lake already, but you just haven’t seen one that you like and this was such a great deal.

So what is your other option?

  • Why not stick it on the back of a very large truck and have it delivered right to the nearest marina on the lake or any other location that you want.

Key West, Florida. Sun, Fun, Music, Water and Sunsets

Key West… Ya Gotta Go

I was in Key West on April 4, 2011 with a Client and his family.  We spent several days at Duck Key at Hawks Cay Resort just south of Marathon and decided to take the yacht to Key West for the day.  It was 60 miles and took us 2 hours to get there.  They had never been to Key West and they were in for a surprise.  Key West is a place that Pirates call home, Musicians go to have their music enjoyed, Friends go to Drink and Party and Fishermen, Boaters and Sailors go to, well, Fish, Boat and Sail.

I’m Sinking and I Can’t Get My Life Jacket (PFD) On!

This just happens too often. Stories about how a boat is sinking and the people on board 1) Cannot find their PFD Life Jacket 's 2) Cannot get them on because their are wrapped up in plastic or the straps are wrapped around them 3) Are all Moldy. The key thing is to remember that you never know when a disaster will hit and your boat will sink. Never assume that it will never happen, even when the shore is in plain sight. Always have enough PFD Life Jacket s onboard and easily available. Read the rest of this entry »

I can see for miles and miles

During a beautiful day on the water, that is true, but in South Florida a rain storm can move in without notice. That leaves you out there and vulnerable. Such a small thing as a Windshield Wiper will make the difference between moving forward safely or putting yourself into immediate danger. Read the rest of this entry »

Branding yourself (and it doesn’t hurt)

Calling all Captains, Yacht Brokers and anyone else that needs to tell the world, or clients, who you are. Normally in this Blog,  www.CaptSteveRussell.com ,  I would not go off subject of “How to…” Boating but I have talked to enough professionals, network marketers, sales people, entertainers and anyone else that deals with the public to know that What I have found here is as important to you as it is to me. Why do you think that I have this Blog!!??

So, you are listed and working with a firm. It may be as an Independent, a Yacht Brokerage, Dealer, Distributer, Manufacturer, Retailer or any other business in which you are working with current and hopefully future clients.  But the question becomes, as the band The Who once said, “Who are you, Who who… Who who”. No really, who are you?
