Captain Brian quin
In 1985, Capt. Brian began a 33-year-long restoration project -- the last in a long line of boats for Captain, who started with a mahogany kayak in his father's basement in 1957, the same year the yacht was launched. After retiring from a career in television news and commercial voiceovers, Capt. Brian chartered String of Pearls throughout New England and 21 years later, the Georgia coast.
Annie was born in Wilmington NC, and has lived in the other coastal cities of Charleston and New Orleans. At home on the water, she has a background of sailing, racing, paddle boarding and working as first mate on String of Pearls. As a pilot with Civil Air Patrol, she also enjoys patrolling our coastal waters and taking part in search and rescue missions.

Captain Bobby grew up on Sapelo Island and got his feet wet driving barges up and down the ICW, sometimes taking them as far as North Carolina. Later as a commercial shrimper, he spent days and sometimes weeks at sea. If he’s not captaining String of Pearls, he is piloting the tug boats that bring the gigantic car and container ships that come in and out of the Port of Brunswick. Known as 'Bucket Bob' to local paddle boarders, he can be found anywhere on our local waters or hang gliding in Florida and the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina.
