Q. Why should I take a class? I’ve been boating for years.
A. Imagine what our roadways would be like if no one had to learn the rules of the road before driving. If you’ve never had a class you may be a hazard to yourself and others on the water. 40% of Texas boating fatalities involved people who had no formal training.

Take the short, sample Texas boating regulations quiz to see some of the reasons why we say, “Take a class!”

Or test yourself with Are you Boat Smart? on basic boating safety.

If you’ve been boating for a while, try our selected Seamanship questions.

Q. Can I come to one of your events without being a member?
A. Yes. See the list on the Calendar and contact the Webmaster.
