Default Yup, im a boating god

I always thought that i was a decent boater, but now i am actually a boating god. Ive been operating boats for 12 years ( got my safety certificate when i was 9) but have been boating well before that. I just got my first High performace boat (36 nortech) a couple weeks ago though which makes my last pantera seems like a rubber duckey in comparison and my dads old scarab more like a fishing skiff. So i took Tres Martins class and finsihed up the 2 day session today. I can honestyl say that i learned more in these 2 days then the past 3 1/2 years of college, where I only spent half the time passed out, but the other half i made deans list. It was a great experience and extremely helpful. As i said, i always thought i was decent, but after taking this class i learned what would have taken years of running my boat all day every day, as well as stuff that i never would have figured out or known how to figure out or even know that i didnt know, if you know what i mean. I feel much more safer and comfortable now when running my boat. And it was awesome holding on for dear life as Tres drove the boat in biscayne bay showing me what it can do, thank god i got the extra tight bolsters.

of course now that i am a boating god, i too will be offering a course for $2,499 ($1 less then Tres). I will also be teaching everything Tres will, as well as much more important things like how to convince your gf that the boat will not handle correctly and it wil be in the interest of safety if she was topless at all times while on the boat.

I planned on taking this class, but I had to take the class early becasue my insurance company sucks a$$ and dropped me after only 3 weeks without notice after paying for half a years premium. Tres was extremely helpful. I never bought a boat from him, or met him or had any dealigns of any kind with his company, yet he went out of his way to help me out. THis is very rare today, especially in the boating industry in south florida. I cant thank him enough.
