Character Study Captain Stewart
posted by April 14 at 9:50 AMon
How long do you plan on being the captain of this fine ship?
As long as my voice holds up. I have been doing this three seasons.
How did you get into Duck driving?
In the 1990s I was a fisherman in Alaska and I worked on commercial fishing boats. To drive the Duck, you need to have a Coast Guard approved captain’s license and a Washington State commercial driver’s license.
Are there ever any ladies on the Duck who want to have a private tour with just the captain sometime?
Well you know it’s a family tour and we meet people from all over the world, and that is the biggest perk. And seeing people have fun, it’s great. I am showing my city, but sometimes occasions arise.
Do these things ever crash or have leaks in them?
No, no. We have mechanics. The captains visually inspect the Ducks. So we have never had any problems.
I’ve heard about some pretty wild stuff involving alcohol on the Duck. Can we get a party Duck going on?
Well, when you rent private tours you get the whole Duck and it’s up to the captain.
If you could take the Duck on a road trip, where would you go?
Florida, Hawaii maybe. Somewhere really warm.
If you could modify the Duck, what would you do? Tinted windows, maybe?
I would put in extra heavy-duty Duck-approved heaters! Oh no, the time! Well it’s about time for me to go get my Duck on the road!
Thanks and adios.
