Two Hours of Free, On-the-Water Training (Jump Start)
If you’ve just purchased a new boat, or upgraded to a larger vessel, our instructors are available to give you personalized on-the-water training–right on your own boat! This free service is available to both Squadron members and the general public.
After you’ve registered here online, one of our instructors will contact you for a quick phone interview to learn about your previous boating experience, type of boat and intended use, and will ask about specific skills you’d like to work on. We will schedule a time and place to meet, and get you set up for a free vessel safety check before conducting the on-the-water training. We can help with trailering, launching, slow speed maneuvering around the docks, rules of the road, and any other boat handling skills where you’d like to gain a bit more confidence. If you would just like some generalized training, we will work from a simple checklist and go through a number of exercises.
This is a low-pressure, one-on-one training session tailored to your specific skill level. Beginners, experienced boaters and new boat owners are all welcome!
