We are pleased to announce that Captain James Johnston will be joining Cooper Boating effective September 1st, 2010. James, or Jamie to his colleagues and friends, has over 15 years experience on power vessels up to and exceeding 100 feet, has worked in the operations area of the marine trade and is a qualified CYA Power Boat Instructor Examiner.
We also wish to inform you that Roger Boulet will be departing Cooper Boating at that time. Early this year Roger informed us that he would move on after the current season to pursue his career as an independent marine technician, and while we are pleased for Roger we will all miss his energy.
The addition of Jamie to the Cooper crew will fill the role that Roger is vacating, with his background leading certain local yachts and a management of a local luxury yacht service department. In addition, his certification to several standards as an instructor examiner allows continued growth of the Cooper Boating school.
You will see that Jamie also enjoys sailing - evidenced by this photo.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish Roger well in his future endeavours and to welcome Jamie to the Cooper Crew.
