Completely irresponsible. Not one of them has a life jacket on, even the one with the bum leg who would drown in seconds because she can’t swim with that brace on. We teach safety and responsibility here at NSB!

I spent most of the day today exploring the waterways around Naples, Keewaydin and the north side of Marco Island. Below you will find images of nautical charts with my notes showing some of the important changes for you to be aware of. Overall I was pleased with the conditions of the marked channels as I did not notice any debris or obstructions within the channels. There are still areas of debris outside the channels and this will take some time to clean up. If you decide to go boating, please keep a sharp lookout. The most notable changes that I observed are shown in the images below.

Boating Lessons | On-The-Water Boat Training for Recreational Boaters

Orientation or Training? Which one did your boat dealership provide when you bought your boat?

An Orientation is an overview of the boat and its systems.

If you were buying a car, the orientation is what your salesman does.

They show you how the lights work and help you connect your phone to Bluetooth before you drive it off the lot.

Training is like Drivers Ed.

You learn the rules of the road, safe driving practices and how to park it.

Ready for Drivers Ed?
