Crew Profile

Captain Shawn Deweese:
Shawn holds a Bachelor's Degree in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, & a Master's Degree in Social Organizational Psychology from Columbia University. He served nine years at sea in the U.S. Coast Guard aboard cutters ALEX HALEY (Kodiak, AK), KUKUI (Honolulu, HI), & CAMPBELL (Kittery, ME). He also commanded Cutters ADAK (Manama, Bahrain) & KISKA (Hilo, HI). He is a licensed Merchant Mariner with a 1600-ton Oceans Master License. Now that we've gotten all of the really serious things out of the way, we figured you'd like to know a little more about this one. He's pretty cool. Shawn is a talented craftsman. He makes cutting boards, paddles, picture frames, & much more, all from really beautiful wood. He's a die hard fan of pretzels. Any kind of pretzels. Most of us consider Shawn to be amphibious. He spends much of his time underwater, sometimes to the concern of others.

Chef/Hostess:
Jackie has an extensive background in Sales, Marketing & Customer Service. Having worked over 15 years in retail, she honed her skills in team trainings, customer education, customer service roles, and most recently in taking a small business from conception through branding, product development and finally to market in nationwide retail outlets. Jackie currently handles website development, marketing, branding, social media & reservations for Becket Benders. She LOVES cooking and testing new recipes (which is really code for eating new recipes). While she thrives in good weather, she loves a good, dreary rainy day - that's the Seattle girl in her (she was born there!) She's a family girl through and through.

First Mate/Deck Hand: Freelance

*****USCG CAPTAINS COURSE OFFERED $900 per student*****
Captain’s license (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels)
This requires a minimum 7 night charter, charter may be either inclusive, half-board, local fare or captain only.

Get out of the classroom & learn from the best. Spend a week aboard S/V August Maverick & study for your captain’s license under a former Coast Guard commanding officer. This course is 55 hours long & is spread over a 7-day trip with Becket Benders aboard the 92-foot sailing yacht August Maverick. Each day we’ll study a focused topic, & over the course of the day you’ll get a chance to actually practice the skills you learn. Whether it is knots, anchors, or small boats, you’ll actually be doing it, instead of learning from a PowerPoint presentation. AND you’ll be doing it on a sweet yacht in an awesome place.
Topics include chart plotting, navigation, deck seamanship, safety, & nautical rules of the road.

Regarding the course – students earn a certificate which serves in lieu of testing at the Coast Guard regional exam center. So for any of the folks in St. Thomas, they probably have OUPV or at a max a 100 ton license. The 7 day course will get you the OUPV license, and the 14 day course would get you the 100 or 50 ton license. After the course, students still need to submit their application, medical exam, and TWIC to the Coast Guard, but they don’t have to test.
