I wouldn't be where I am today without their help.
I graduated from a maritime academy and wanted to pursue a career on harbor tugs. However, with only 20 days of time on a towing vessel and no TOAR I was having a difficult time finding a job. Once I completed my TOAR with Sam I was immediately hired by a harbor tug company in the gulf. A few years later as a mate on a brand new z-drive boat I can’t thank Sam, Matt and Paul enough. They are great guys who run a professional and very convenient operation that allows Mariners to advance their careers. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help.
I enjoyed my class, on the Cornell. Matt, and Brody, were professional, quick, and got the job done. If you like old boats, this is it. That old 16 cylinder Cleveland engine,
is totally cool. Wish I had more time to sight see around Kingston. There is some great history there.
The class was great!
I was a little hesitant in the beginning but the Cornell handled so well that all that was gone in the first two minutes at the wheel!
The course was very good and total hands on.
I was never so pleased to get this class with Diamond marine. Sam, Matt and the crew were great. The course was very good and total hands on. From the beginning to the end. The captains have a lot of patience and knowledge. The crew was was helpfull and the experience was great. If you are trying to get your towing endorsement call Sam and he will take care of you guys.
Thanks again for your crew and staff
Great instructions and equipment looking forward to learning more about a field of tugs thanks again for your crew and staff
