Did you take boaters saftey?

I am teaching Sheri how to drive the speed boat, in addition to the sail boat. I told her that she needs to take boaters saftey, and that I would take it again with her. I took it when I was 12 or 13, and think that it would be a good refresher. It is free, which is even better.

Did you ever take it?

Back when I was 15 and the law was that you could drive a boat or jetski by yourself if you had one. They changed the law right after I got it too. Its a good chorse though. I learned alot that I didnt know, plus you could ask the DNR officer questions.

I've taken the coast guard and power squadron (Grosse Pointe) courses. I've also passed my 100 Ton Master's exams. I highly recommend the power squadron course - it was 12 weeks long (1 nite per week), but you get a lot more out of it.

as much as i hate to say it, I think EVERYONE who drives a boat should be REQUIRED to take more then a one day class... maybe then there would be a little less chaos out there on busy weekends. I also hold my 100 ton masters with sail and tow endorsements

Cool Trend....I got the tow also...I should've taken the sail too...but didn't...

I agree that every one on the water should take a course...

x3 in the hands of an idiot, a speedboat is nothing more than a fiberglass cruise missile. if you need a license to fly a plane, you should have one to drive a speedboat.

When I was 11 I held a very minor captains license for a while too.

Looking back I cant belive when I was 13, I was taking out my dads 20ft slick craft with friends and riding my friends 60mph seadoos.
