The course wasn’t just about safety- it was about being a capable captain as well. I learned several very important factoids that will make me a safe and competent captain with my two young sons aboard my boat. Finally, I thank Boat Safe US, LLC for the Saturday class- the Internet-only courses only have weekday classes in obscure locations that start too early in the evening- most people who can afford to buy a boat have a full-time job.
