Our Guarantee

At The Boat Galley, we have only one mission: to make boat life better.

Everyone on The Boat Galley team is a liveaboard cruiser and we understand the challenges that come with life on a boat. When our team encounters frustration, we come up with practical and innovative solutions.

This is how we came to radically reinvent the cruising guide, how we developed better reference materials, and how we created affordable, in-depth online courses that help us share our extensive knowledge with you at your pace.

Try our products and see. If they don't make your boat life better, use our 30-day FREE no-hassle return guarantee.

The Instructors

John Herlig (VHF Radios) and Carolyn Shearlock (all other items) are instructors at Cruisers University at the Annapolis Boat Shows. Both frequently write for various boating and cruising magazines. 

John calls his 1967 Rawson 30 home when he's not helping deliver boats; he's sailed most of the East Coast of the US, Bahamas, and Caribbean.

Carolyn and her husband Dave have lived aboard two different boats for a total of 15 years. They've cruised over 14,000 miles in the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Mexico and Central America, and more recently Florida and the Bahamas.

The six primary courses are expanded versions of the courses John and Carolyn teach at Cruiser's University.

All-Access Pass

I have just started the modules, but so far the information given is clear and concise, and broken down into lessons that are easy to understand. As you progress you build upon your knowledge. Very happy with lessons.
