Captain and crew

Captain Jim Bielinski has been on and around boats of all shapes and sizes throughout the course of his life.  Over the years, he has owned and operated many different boats, from beach catamarans to a classic wooden cruiser, as well several cruising sailboats and motor vessels. Several of these he has completely renovated and rebuilt.  Since 1996, Captain Jim has lived in Pensacola, during which time he has spent countless hours sailing and cruising the waterways of the Gulf Coast.
