Have you asked your self questions like: Why should I take a Boating Safety & Seamanship class? Why do I need a Safety Check List before getting underway? I want to buy a boat … what is the best boat for me? How much safety equipment must I have on my boat? I have a cell phone … why do I need a marine radio? If I swamp my boat … what do I do? Do I really have to wear a life jacket? What are the major causes of accidents that happen out on the water and how do I avoid them?
You can get answers to these questions and more by registering to take a Boating Skills and Seamanship Course that will be offered by the Onset/Marion Flotilla 63 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary. Classes will be held on Wednesday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Marion Marconi Building at 13 Atlantis Drive, Marion, Massachusetts.

This course is directed to the first-time boater and as a great review for the more experienced boater.
