The Captain and his crew...


See what Captain Pincott is working on now. Captain Raymond Pincott (don't call him Ray) is the official owner of the Navigation Centre and a Master Mariner holding Master Class One qualifications as well as teaching and assessing qualifications. Raymond is also an Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) qualified Magnetic Compass Adjuster.  He is a member of The Company of Master Mariners of Australia, The Nautical Institute of London, National Safety Committee, member of the team of advisors for Australian Industry Standards. His aim is to encourage safety at sea after spending many years on the water both for pleasure and professionally. He appreciates the value of correct procedures on-board ships and when the opportunity arose to purchase the Navigation Centre in 2004 he saw it as the ideal opportunity to spend more time at home (with his lovely wife) and still pursue his love of all things nautical.
Gillian Pincott - The Manager  (one of the  kids on board) is a real computer whiz so a  real asset to the business. Gillian has many  years experience in sales as well as office  administration and has a ready supply of  jokes and sends most people from the shop  laughing.  Gillian looks after ordering,  invoicing & everything for the shop as well as bossing her brother David around.
David Pincott (also one of the kids on board) is our chart correction king and drummer extraordinaire. As well as being our delivery driver and 'guy about town'  just loves being told what to do by his big sister Gillian!! David can often be found tapping out a catchy beat with correction pens or parallel rulers.
