The two-day course will include an interactive portion especially tailored to the needs and interests of motor boaters. Saturday focuses on large group seminars and discussions, plus the exciting live U.S. Coast Guard on-the-water helicopter rescue, life raft and signal flare demonstrations. The day concludes with an opportunity to visit with the presenters at the evening reception. Sunday involves an option for more hands-on training where participants can simulate an abandon ship scenario by getting into their choice of gear/PFDs and jumping into a pool, swimming to an inflated life raft and hauling themselves into the raft. Other options include engine repair, systems and navigation.
