Yup, took it a looooong time ago. Wouldn't mind a refresher. I also drove amateur competitive show skiing which included emergency water recovery. (how to stabilize a person who may have suffered a spinal cord injury) I highly recommed this.

You dumbass, anyone over 16 is not "required" to have it. I have been on the water and boats since I was born, but I still took it, and am going to take it again. You take the class for the saftey of others around you, and because just being "on" a boat does not teach you much.

This is the second time that you have come into a post of mine and tried to show how cool you are and blah blah blah. Why don't you start bragging about how you are the first person EVER to go on my ignore list.

Agreed, I have zero issues with requiring boaters to get certified. Lots of morons out there.

I took it in Jr. High. My daughter should be taking it soon. That is going to be a beautiful thing having a designated driver.
