If this is your first boat, I would very strongly suggest you and your wife take a Coast Guard Auxilliary course in your area soon. Its a great course and much better than the ones usually put on by local Sheriff depts.

Once my son gets to be 10 years old I will be taking the whole family for a course and a refresher for me, its been a while

Seriously, boating is boating. Except sailing. That is death in slow motion.

My wife and I will never be taking this boat to the ocean. I will always be in freshwater around here on the lakes. We are going to be taking a safety course, probably the one at Lake lanier, I just read about. Can never be to safe out on the water. To many idiots out there.

Good luck with the boat and welcome to the board - it's a great place - and there's nothing else as fun as being on the water with friends.
