Accelerated Safe Powerboat Handling
Due to shortage of instructors this course is not available all the time. Please check with us.
This 7 hour hands-on, on-the-water course is for anyone who has taken a classroom boating course but needs experience to safely operate a small motorboat and improve their boathandling skills. Students will be expected to have already taken their Boaters Ed course online and will have to bring their Boaters Ed card to the course to prove they are legal to drive a boat. This course focuses on hands-on application of all skills, and almost all of your time will be spent actually out on the boat, with short periods in the classroom to explain the concepts first.
