I learned invaluable techniques for retrieving a person or item from the water. I docked so many times and so many different ways that I will feel comfortable docking under many circumstances. I will have no problem pulling up to a gas dock, restaurant or in between two boats which was always a problem for me. This class was a godsend!

The beginners Boat class, taught by Captain Tyler Barrus, was a great introduction to Boating for my wife and a valuable reminder course full of good boat handling tips for me. Well worth the price of the Class. After some practice with my new boat I will be enrolling in the intermediate boater class. Well done.
