We used my nortech which was a great benefit becasue now i know what it can do, even though i dont think i have the balls to turn it that tight, its good to know it can. by next week i shoudl know how much my insurance was dropped.

as far as cruiser classes, i didnt know that you need any training to go that slow???
jsut hire a captain, i have been planing to get my capt liscense for a while now, eventually i get the time needed (200 days in 2 years at 4 hrs per day driving with a certified captain signing off on it). When i get that ill take the coast guard course and test, then you can (legally) hire me.

Hey God,
Did you fix your insurance problem or did you leave that one to satan again?

I called on him today to make sure he got through the weekend OK. He was a good student and he is quite sharp. Just remember to be safe and plan ahead , being aware and apply everything you learned to your everyday boating. He learned all about Vees and Cats, Do and donts, and he is very aware of how to spot a potential problem.

Hey Tres,

I remember reading about your new school and how it was geared towards persons driving boats that did over 100 mph. Do you also teach how to drive a boat that does 70-80 mph?

If so, I may call on you in a couple years. Not for insurance purposes, but to learn to race a boat.

Bill
