That might prove to be difficult since your not sure who is really picking up on what is taught. And they have to take a test. I am working with dealers and boat builders, they just need to call me. You have to get through to everyone you teach.

It would be great to have in the NY/NJ area, but I dont think it would go over to well ......unless the Insurance policy permits the students to get to do some driving. Nothing can replace hands on experience.

Just a few ideas to consider.

How about doing a group rate for Chicago? Maybe Mark Smith could organize this with the poker run!?!??!?!?!

Keep up the good work!
Tres works with the indiciduals in the class which os one reason why it is such a great course. It will be impossible to give individual attention over the web. Save that for freshman lectures.

I wish it was that easy, But You think about it for just one second, First My Liability insurance would be void. Second Imagine your in my boat with 3 other students, and I let one of them drive and he just turns the boat way too hard and throw all of us out. I would just be bad for everyone. There many students that have taken the class and every single person feels they got more than they expected, and some of them are 30 year boaters allready. There is so much you get from this class. Just ask any one that has taken it.
