Are you a beginner looking to learn basic skills or are  you more advanced looking to fine tune your abilities?  Are you stepping up the size of your boat and want to learn the different techniques for a larger craft? Or maybe you are a first time boat buyer and need advice along the way.

Smart Boating LI customizes each learning experience to match  your goals!
