“This informative, hands-on course is a seminar version of the U.S.C.G. Auxiliary’s popular online course,” said Bob Fowler, sales consultant and broker, MarineMax Panama City Beach. “We try to have fun while interacting with personal instructors by sharing important safety practices, operational skills and maintenance advice that will keep you and your family protected while on the water.”
Topics that will be covered include general boating basics and knowledge, boating restrictions and regulations, required and recommended safety equipment, how to safely operate and navigate your boat, and how to handle issues that may arise.
