Outerlimits Teams with Tres Martin Performance School for Safety on the Water

Bristol RI – August 18, 2006 – Outerlimits is pleased to announce that with the purchase of every new 2007 Outerlimits, a certified course at the Tres Martin Performance Boating School is included. Now, each Outerlimits customer will have the opportunity to learn through a highly skilled professional how to safely enjoy and maintain their new boat.

Tres Martin, a renowned high performance racing champion, started in the boating industry in the late 70s. He has numerous racing victories including World and National Championships. His knowledge and experience is available to boaters who wish to better their skills and take their own understanding of boating to a higher level. The Tres Martin Performance Boating School has filled a need in our industry by teaching boat owners the proper and safe usage of their vessels. Martin is a strong advocate of safe boating and believes safety and handling theories need the most time - so the first full day is spent in the classroom. The session begins by covering the basics of boating safety and related equipment, from PFDs and fire extinguishers to kill lanyards. Then topics include rules of the waterway, simple boat maintenance and occupant safety plus a complete explanation of the dynamics of hull design. Time is spent on the specifics of trimming, tabbing, acceleration, deceleration, turning, wave and wake crossing and how to take corrective action in the event of a problem. The class then covers the techniques for maneuvering such as docking and other tight situations. On day two, the students get a first hand demonstration of everything they have learned out on Lake Weir in Ocala Florida. (Classes are also exportable at other locations with a minimum of 4 people.) The students are shown how to perform an essential equipment pre-launch check, common maintenance tips and potential problem areas. In the last two hours of the class, Martin makes a thorough effort to make sure the students are capable of putting their newly acquired skills into practice. If students bring their own boat, they will have the opportunity to be behind the wheel during maneuvers after class completion. “This class focuses on safety, having fun, and proper usage of your boat”, stated Martin. “I want to bring a safe educational approach to high performance boating to owners and operators.” Upon completion of the class, an official certificate of completion is presented to each student. Students walk away from this class with a newfound knowledge, confidence and understanding of their vessel’s operations. Another major benefit to the school is that many insurance agents and companies offer a discount rate on their insurance policies.


“We want our customers to enjoy their new Outerlimits in complete safety,” stated Mike Fiore, president of Outerlimits. “And if there is a way we can assist them with discounted insurance rates, well that is just another advantage. Our customers deserve the absolute best support available so that is why we are offering this opportunity to every 2007 customer. Our client satisfaction rate has always been and continues to be the best in the industry. This is just one more benefit from Outerlimits that illustrates our commitment to our customers.”

Bravo to Outerlimits, shows very intelligent thinking on their behalf. Will help the entire High Performance industry over time with a safer and more in control operator. Maybe start to reverse some of the bad press the High Performance boats sometimes get.

The concept sounds good and everything, BUT, day 2 instruction on Lake Weir in Ocala is not what I would call the normal type of waters these Outerlimits, (Big OFFSHORE POWERBOATS!) boats will be used in,
Good luck,
Dean

Way to go, OL and Tres.
It's great to see a manufacturer finally step up and offer something like this.
