Advanced Boating Class

The Advanced Class is a three-hour on-water course that offers more complex boating operations lessons.

    • Maneuvering in close quarters
      Maneuvering a boat is not like maneuvering any vehicle on land. It is completely different. You need to turn around in tight quarters.


    • Urgency Stop Procedure
      The stopping of the vessel is done by reversing the rotational direction of the Main engine and thereby the propeller.
    • Item Pick-Up Procedure
      Once the line is through the ring, walk forward as the boat drops back (taking up the slack in the free end of the line as you go forward) then quickly cleat off.


    • Beaching the Boat
      The beaching provides moments out of time. The boat is motionless on the shore. We can embark and disembark at will.


    • Anchoring
      As the boat drifts back, lower the anchor to the bottom, then gently pay out the rode. This will prevent the chain from piling up in a heap.


    • Mooring Ball Use
      Tie your bow line and secure your boat on that spot for a specified time.


    • Trimming The Boat
      To adjust a boat’s trim, begin with your vessel on a plane and the engine shaft parallel to the water’s surface. This is referred to as a neutral trim position


    • Advanced Docking
      Docking can be one of the most stressful tasks you can perform, especially if you are a new boater.
