4th Alarm Charters stated as a dream many years ago. I have owned boats all my life and have spent thousands of hours on the water. I have fished up and town the east and west coast with some of the best Captains in the charter industry with the dream of someday owning my own fishing charter.

The name of the boat is "Knot on Call". Careers in the fire service frequently require you to be on-call or on standby and ready to respond if needed. This means you must stay in the area and available and not out on the ocean fishing. When we are out fishing we are knot on call...
