Jerry grew up in St. Louis, Mo where as a teen he would drive out to the banks of the Mississippi River to watch the tows and pleasure craft go cruising by, dreaming "one day that will be me out there". That dream happened 17 boats ago! (not counting dinghies) and culminated with a 480 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge.
Jerry and his wife Madge got their first boat in 1981. Since then Jerry has run many different boats for himself and others in Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Seven different Inland Rivers and the Gulf. Jerry has experience running boats up to 85' and estimates over 25,000 miles on the water with over 300 lockages. Jerry moved from the St. Louis area in 2015 to start his career as a Yacht Broker. Since then Jerry has sea trialed 30-40 different boats per year. This experience enables him to be a great partner in matching the right boat with the right owner.
