Dennis Corwin manages 200 employees, a fleet of 4 Cruise/Sight Seeing Ships in Portland, and, a Sternwheeler with 2 Event Venues in Cascade Locks, OR. While running the day to day operation of this business, Dennis continues to be looked upon as a father figure to his 200 employees.
Many employees will be featured as "cast" members and will be followed throughout the season. Dennis' diverse, fla...vorful crew will be the focus of the episodes, relaying stories about there lives on board as well as "off the boat".
The 5 incredible ships will be featured as well as the beautiful back drop of the Columbia River and Gorge. From ongoing safety drills, "make a wish" cruises, windsurfer rescues, personal relationships within the "family", weddings, plane crashes in the river, and appearances of local bands, we will see snapshots of a day in the live of a crew member.
There will be a positive take on how Dennis takes care of personnel conflicts and problems, and the goal will be to demonstrate how these are handled constructively with positive outcomes.
Stories will be humorous, touching, serious, dramatic, and thought-provoking. We’ll view the way everyone works together to create seamless events. One of the main aspects of "Ships Ahoy" will be to show the inspiring moments that rise to the surface amidst the chaos of running a fleet of ships.
