Our Public Boating Course is offered to any woman, man, and teen who is not a member of USPS but is concerned about safe boating. The USPS Boating Course have helped more than 3,000,000 people since 1914 to get acquainted with the nautical rules and regulations, the forces of nature that affect our activity, and the traditional courtesies at sea. It also helped to learn the basics about the mariner's compass, chart plotting, engine troubleshooting, speed-time-distance calculations, bearing taking, and many other subjects.With today's waters overcrowded with high speed boats, sail boats, personal watercrafts, skiers, and almost any imaginable floatation device, it makes more sense than ever to learn about the rules of the road, safety, and other subjects that will keep your days on the water enjoyable times for you and your family. Safe boating is the main purpose of our public boating course. Please take a look at the course outline and its schedule, below.
