I have been operating power boats safely for 60 years, and now I am required to obtain a licence?
Give your head a shake.
The power boats I have operated came with a small 1 1/2 HP to 350 HP, and everything in between. I have never had an accident, followed all the rules, and never endangered my family or others while operating a power boat.
This is just another money grab, and I am sick and tired of it.

Awww...Bobbie the Safety Boat looks so cute:)

But there's nothing 'cute' about not being safely prepared and trained while operating a vessel on the water. Good job in offering this course.
