Boating Skills & Seamanship

More in-depth and informative than the entry level Boat America class that ran in September, if you are serious about boating as an owner, worker, visitor of a boat owner, or just want to be comfortable aboard a vessel, then this class is for you!  Presented by members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, this 7-week class is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA).

Topics Include:
- The language of boating and being on the water
- Boats, their designs, equipment, and carriage requirements
- Legal considerations
- Boat Handling:  in the water, on a trailer, and PWCs
- Aids to navigation and their meaning
- Navigation rules of the road and the law (Federal and Mass)
- Knots and other things you really should know

This course, a comprehensive course designed for both the experienced and novice boater, is for all boaters regardless of vessel type - power, sail, paddlecraft, or PWC, and provides up-to-date knowledge for handling boats in all conditions. 

Successful completion of the class and exams will earn students a USCG Auxiliary course completion card and Massachusetts state boating safety card.

Includes course textbook.

The class is appropriate for boaters age 15 and older.
