Great photo opportunity though...
SML needs navigational lessons, not driving lessons. Many uncharted hazards there.

If it is a lesson on big water, Bay, Ocean, I would love to run along side BillR, he is a safe boater, that is as long as BillR keeps it below 75... :-)

After the deaths this year at SML, a WOT schooling run may not be advised in a Power Boat..

Maybe you should teach the class

I've been boatin since I was 12. I know some things, but I am sure I will learn ALOT from someone who KNOWS how to run (and race) a performance boat properly. I am looking forward to it. Now, if I could think of a way to write it off as a business expense. . . . . . . . .

I have been boating for over 30years and i did learn a lot. and the good thing about the class is he teaches you why things happen, since i have a twin step boat i left with a good understanding about both ts and cats. i consider myself a very safe boater but i know there is always more to learn and i know the class was worth every penny.

Ditto! We looked at new houses and came to the quick realization that ours is pretty damn nice for what I am paying. So now we are thinking new kitchen. Plus it's time to replace my 9 YO Lexus with a new one. And if my boat sells....
