For many boaters docking and maneuvering in close quarters presents the most stressful and unpleasant part of the boating experience.
BOATS of RI can give you and your crew the knowledge and confidence to allow you to handle your boat like a professional mariner.
For most boaters 2-4 hours of on board training is sufficient to greatly enhance their skills and remove the anxiety of getting underway, docking or operating a boat in close quarters.
The training includes:
· Proper use of dock lines
· Use of spring lines in controlling the boat
· Handling wind and current
· Boat response at low speed
· Crew team work
