Ok so where do we go take this stupid test. Just another way for the State to make some money.

No S Smith - no money to be made. Intent is to keep you & others alive with all limbs in place. pay particular attention to propeller safety because when you least expect it, even with proper training, you could end up maimed with one arm, 39 surgeries & living on a scooter at the age of 38 lijke I was (now 54). Husband was killed as was our fishing guide all well traioned. So just learn & perhaps in my lifetime I'll get back in a fishing boat. Oh - WEAR YOUR KILL SWITCH - get a prop guard.

The course is free. The only money the state will make, is the money they will save doing less search and rescue missions due to boating accidents. I am a boating accident survivor. I was hit by the propeller. I spent months in the hospital, years in physical therapy. The loss of my arm was only one of my numerous injuries. Everyone that operates a boat should have to take a course. It only makes sense. Would you drive a car without any instruction? A boat is a lethal object with zero safety protection between human and propeller. Take the course and pay attention. Be happy this new law is taking place. It will keep you and your family safer. Thats what it's all about. Not money.
