"Great info. My wife and I watched the videos together and discovered some new ways to approach our boat days. Looking forward to putting these ideas into motion. Our tri-toon boat just came in and should be ready 10/13 for some practice."
"Great program for a newbie like me. Looking forward to taking ownership of my first boat this weekend. I plan to use the pivoting and other exercises to learn how to control the boat. Thanks for demonstrating those exercises. Great job! Well-worth the investment."
"The docking stuff is gold, especially with the multi cameras. The push-pull for effective turning in place and the bot cover unit was our favorite part. Some unit were long winded without enough examples etc, such as the open water unit."
"I must admit that all these docking lessons definitely helped out on Memorial Day while I was docking my brand new Avalon. I have learned so much from these videos! Thanks so much Capt. Matt."
