We spent this past weekend on the water a bit and my wife has finally agreed that a boat may very well be in our future. Like any other aspect where big safety issues are involved, especially where my family is involved, I would like to get a lot more educated about running them, open water navigation, how to use all the electronics, etc., before I just jump into it. What types of courses are available for this, and do you have any recommendations on them? I found a few things on the state's website yesterday, but didn't really find any calendars or many specifics.
Thanks in advance.
