MEET ONE OF OUR CAPTAINS

CHAMBLISS

CAPTAIN PETE CHAMBLISS is typical of many of our members. He spent 37 years as a state government employee before switching careers and becoming a full-time captain. He earned his Coast Guard captain's license (a 50-ton master for inland waters) and now operates water-taxis for Watermark. He also serves voluntarily as director of CAPCA's continuing education program.

"I've held my Coast Guard captain's license for 25 years, but I never really used it until eight years ago," Pete says. "I joined CAPCA for the educational programs that it runs and for the opportunity to network with—and learn from—other captains." See Pete on the water in Annapolis or come meet him and other captains at one of our monthly meetings. CAPCA meetings are public and you're welcome to attend. See CALENDAR / SPEAKERS on this website.
