MEET CHRIS CAMP

Meet Chris Camp.

Please join us in welcoming Chris Camp to our sales team at Atlantic Marine.  After growing up the son of thirty-four year veteran employee of Grady-White Boats, Chris left Winterville, North Carolina to attend school at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.  While earning his B.S. in Business Administration from the Cameron School of Business, Chris spent a lot time around the Atlantic Marine docks.  After graduating, he left Wilmington to begin his career.   A few short years later, Chris was encouraged by his father, Steve Camp, to explore the opportunity to come to work with us.  Chris is excited to be back in the community and still enjoys fishing, hunting, and being on the water, preferably, he says, with his yellow lab, Hattie.

Chris’s youth and energy will be a tremendous asset to our organization, and it doesn’t hurt that Grady-White already runs in his blood.  Chris, welcome to the team!

DREDGING IS COMPLETE, BEACH IS BACK

Crews aboard the E.W. Ellefsen cutterhead dredge began the beach renourishment project in late April, and the project has been completed.  Crews moved over 775,000 cubic yards of sand from the south end of the island, new Masonboro Inlet, to a stretch of Wrightsville Beach coastline from the Blockade Runner to the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort, north of Johnnie Mercer’s Pier.

The project cost approximately $9 million, according to Bob Keistler, a project manager for the Army Corps of Engineers, and will be needed again in four years.

Enjoy these photographs of the progress from local photographers.

SAFE BOATING COURSE OFFERED – MAY 3

Are you looking for a little more confidence out on the water this summer?  The Cape Fear Sail and Power Squadron is holding a safe boating course beginning May 3.  This course is unique in that it is one of the few that incorporates hands on learning on the water, in addition to the classroom training.

The course begins with an eight hour certifications class, America’s Boating Course®.  Approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and recognized by the USCG this class satisfies the North Carolina boating safety education requirement.

The next step of the course is local knowledge.  Local boaters with years of experience will explain the local waters, including the Intercostal Waterway, Masonboro Inlet, and the Cape Fear River.  You’ll learn about local tides, currents, and prevailing weather conditions.  You’ll learn about marker placement and how to read markers.

The third segment is a three hour on-the-water training cruise.  This experience is invaluable to young boaters and those new to the area.  This helps in applying the classroom knowledge to our local waters.

For more information or to enroll in the next course, visit www.capefearboatingcourse.org or email weteachboating@gmail.com.

Atlantic Marine recommends this course for young boaters, new boaters, and those new to this area.

IS YOUR BOAT READY FOR SPRING? WE’RE READY FOR YOU!

Azaleas are blooming and spring is here!  Is your boat ready for the inaugural day at Mason’s Inlet or the first fishing trip?  We’ve spent the winter preparing to make your service experience even better; check out what we’ve been doing:

We’ve made scheduling your service easier than ever.  Simply visit atlanticmarine.com/service and select the services you would like preformed and when you’d like us to have it complete.  Don’t see the specific service you’d like preformed?  There’s a section for you to leave our service managers specific instructions.  You can also indicate for us to pick up or drop off your boat.  We’ll gladly come to your marina, dock, or lift, and pick your boat up and drop it off once service is complete.

As we continue maintain ever advancing Yamaha Outboard technology, our two Yamaha Master Techs, Brian Smith and Jody Lang, attended Yamaha Helm Master school in Kennesaw, Georgia this winter.  Brain and Jody were certified in this new technology as we are beginning to stock and sell more inventory with Yamaha’s all new joy stick control system, Helm Master.

Other areas of preparation for a busy spring included a staff trip to the Grady-White factory.  The face to face meetings and interaction with plant staff was invaluable to our team.  It was an excellent opportunity for our staff here to meet with their Grady counterparts and discuss issues and solutions.  See photos from our trip below.

Now that you’re up to date on what we’ve done to prepare for the spring service season, click here to book your service request!
