Safety Workshop: Suddenly in Command

The captain becomes incapacitated or falls overboard; you purchase a new boat for the first time. You are Suddenly in Command. This boating safety primer is designed for those not generally at the helm, and will help you to be prepared with the basics in case of an emergency. You will learn about your vessel, nomenclature, and operating principles such as starting the engine, basic boat handling, and your on-board equipment. Included descriptions of what causes boating mishaps and how to minimize them. This course is a must for family members in case something happens to the boat operator.
