For many of us, the most stressful part of boating is docking, especially if the dock in question is near the deck of a waterfront restaurant. For the first time ever, we are offering a TrawlerFest staple--Boat Handling in Close Quarters - to you online. This course will teach you the ins and outs of how to handle your boat around docks and marinas so that you can enjoy your day on the water with confidence, whether you're a new boat owner or have owned one for years. This course is designed for people with little or no boating experience. It is perfect for a first-time buyer who is considering a large powerboat purchase, someone who has already purchased that first boat, or an existing boater who is moving up to a bigger craft.

How This Course Works

We know you have a busy schedule, so we’ve designed this course to be taken at your own pace. You’ll learn through a variety of interactive formats, including video instruction, photo descriptions, and more. Each lesson builds on the last, and, while we’ve designed the course to be 5 sessions long, you can take it as quickly or slowly as you want. Plus, once you purchase the course, the lessons are yours forever.
