Tres has said to ask those of you who have taken the course some questions, so if you don't mind...............

How many in your class?

How much one on one time did you get in your boat on the water with Tres?

Did he run your boat and show you how things are done? Then have you repeat the deal? Or just coach you thru it? Generally how does the on water part work?

Was it worth the $2500 to take the course, in your opinion?

There are a few of us in this area that have been talking about this and we would all appreciate any info you can share with us. Thanks in advance.

you use your own boat, it looks like in your post you are asking if he has a boat lined up. this way you learn to drive your boat safer and handle better at speed from what I have been told which is a good thing. for all of us I just need to get my boat together and stop adding changes

There were 3 in our class.

Well over 2 hours ON Water in MY boat. He and I only. He drove and showed me some things than let me have at it with him coaching. Walks you thru situations you could get yourself into. He will work with you till YOU are comfortable.
Safety in 1st on the list. Show syou things to look for in the rigging and boat in general.

This is my first T/S and with all the horror stories, I feel the price for peace of mind is key.

Thank you. Safe to assume you were in the ultra course?



Anyone else out there that can post their experiences in the Tres course, we would appreciate you input as well.
