Boat Handling

Event Phone: (281) 337-1403

This class covers the Boat Handling Course.

The course will be taught every Wednesday night, on the listed schedule.  The first 6 dates are instruction, followed by an overall review and the exam.  If you cannot make it to one or more of the instruction dates, you should be okay.  Please plan on attending the review and exam date, as it must be done in person.

This is a hands on type of course but there is a teleconference option that will be used with our students who are not in the Houston area.  Online (teleconference) information will be sent to those who need this education option.

This is the course that starts your education with America’s Boating Club – Houston.  Whatever type of boating you do, whatever type of vessel you use – this is the course to start with!  The in-depth education for each topic sets the baseline for your education.  Great course for new boaters, those boaters wanting to continue their education or refresh their knowledge; an excellent course for Girl Scout Mariners and BSA Sea Scouts and kayakers!  Attendees will get dual-credit: for the course and the 6-associated seminars, when the course is successfully completed.

There are no pre-requisites for the course.  It is preferred that the boater safety course be completed, but that is not necessary.  Two additional books that are not required for this course, but are great references for subjects in this course, are the  “The Weekend Navigator, 2nd Edition”  and  “Knots, Bends, & Hitches”; both can be ordered online from US Power Squadron’s ‘Ship’s Store’.
