Safe Boating
If you have never owned and operated a boat I strongly encourage you to take a safe boating class. They are offered by the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and the United States Power Squadron. Your Insurance premium will usually be reduced for successful completion of a safe boating class. If husband and wife both complete the class it will usually be reduced even more.
But more important than saving money is having the knowledge to operate the boat safely and bring your family and guests back safely.

You will learn the Rules of the Road, so you know what is expected of you when approaching another vessel and also how to read the buoys and channel markers to keep you away from underwater hazards. Your knowledge will be apparent to your guests and they will have confidence in you being a safe skipper and it will make their cruise more pleasurable.
