The About Us

Story Behind Anchors Up Carolina

Anchors Up Carolina was started as a way to share a passion for living on the water and spending time with our Anchors Up.


Shawn has been fishing since he was born and eventually became a 200 Ton Licensed Captain. After years spent working in the industry, Shawn left to run several of his own businesses. Today he is the lead writer for Anchors Up and is continually searching and creating valuable content for readers. If you want insider tips as to the best fishing spots in Savannah, this is your guy.


Britt is Shawn’s wife of almost nine years and has no problem admitting to the fact that she has caught the largest shark of anyone in the house. Britt is a former Professional Golfer and full-time writer and enjoys working to make Anchors Up the best that it can be. Britt has had a love for fishing from the time she was five years old, but her love for the Savannah area and living near the water maybe even stronger.

Mack and Finn

Mack (7) and Finn (4) are expert contributors to the Anchors Up team. With their insight, we can answer some really great questions and work together as a family to see this blog grow. When they develop ideas for blog posts and guides, you can bet they are taken seriously, even if the most recent suggestion was, “What Is A Boat.”
