Crew Profile

Captain Dave Goodman fell in love with the Virgin Islands in 1977 and has been sailing here since then. He has a USCG 50 ton Master's Captain's License. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Dave began sailing on Long Island Sound as a teenager. He went to the University of Wisconsin Madison for his undergraduate studies (B.A. Philosophy) and sailed extensively with the U.W. Hoofers. He graduated the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in 1977 and did his first bareboat charter in the Virgin Islands for his graduation gift. What a gift it was! He was hooked! He married, had 3 children, moved back to Wisconsin, began racing Hobie Cats and sailing on the Great Lakes. He also has sailed in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Puget Sound, San Juan Islands), the Med (French and Italian Riverias), and the Bahamas.

Captain Dave purchased Bel Ami in May of 2007,after semi-reting from his busy Occupational Medicine consulting practice in Wisconsin. Bel Ami's home was St. Thomas, and for Captain Dave this was like going back to 1977 and falling in love with the Islands all over again. He moved aboard, obtained his medical license in the U.S.V.I., and began consulting in the Virgin Islands. Since that time he has sailed Bel Ami extensively throughout the Spainish, American and British Virgin Islands, as well as the Bahamas in 2009-2010. Many of these voyages have been solo, as Bel Ami is designed with electronic controls for the sails, anchoring, and so forth, that permit safe and effective single handed operation. Captain Dave loves to introduce people to his world of sailing and cruising the islands. If you are a sailor looking for your first bareboat experience, but would like to get a little more "big boat" experience under your belt, sailing the Bel Ami under Captain Dave's guidance is just the ticket. If you are a couple looking for a stress free sailing vacation get-a-way (honeymoon, anniversary, or just for the heck of it), let Captain Dave handle all the details with the All-Inclusive Package. Captain Dave is a gourmet cook, an accomplished musician (piano, accordion, harmonica), who loves people. He is dedicated to pampering you in the style that you'd like to be accustomed to.

Bobbie Strahl hails from Louisiana by way of Green Bay Wisconsin. She has a degree in horticulture and has operated her landscaping/gardening business in Green Bay WI for over 30 years. Looking to make a change in her life and to escape the Wisconsin winters, Bobbie joins Captain Dave aboard Bel Ami as hostess with the mostess, not to mention galley wench extraordinaire. Although Captain Dave continues to do most of the cooking (he loves to eat and loves to cook!), Bobbie provides an invaluable service in entertaining guests aboard Bel Ami. Her bright smile, warm personality and wonderful spirit of living are infectious. She is an accomplished artist, and recently started to experiment in metal sculpturing. Her work has been exhibited in various outdoor settings, adding beauty to the natural environment.
