Dominic first began boating in Pensacola, Florida when his family lived on a bayou. His father bought a 12' Jon boat with an outboard. When Dominic 7 and 8 years he would take the dog and explore up and down the length of the waterway.
At an early age, Dominic had been onboard aircraft carriers with his father many times and was always fascinated by them.

He joined his family on a two day trip accompanying the USS Independence from Norfolk, VA to Philadelphia to leave it there for SLEP (Ship Life Extension Program).

Dominic earned Boy Scout merit badges in Boating, Sailing and earned the Eagle Scout rank at the age of 12. He sailed all over Puget Sound and even into Lake Washington through the Ballard Locks.
