FORT MYERS, Fla. – Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats and Tres Martin Performance Boating School have partnered to include a certified course at the Tres Martin Performance Boating School with the purchase of every new Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boat, the companies said in a press release Thursday.
This is the second time the boating school has partnered with a boat builder for such an offer. Earlier this year, Tres Martin Performance Boating School and Sunsation announced a similar arrangement.
The session begins by covering the basics of boating safety and related equipment, from proper lifejackets and fire extinguishers to ignition stop switch lanyards. Topics include rules of the waterway, boat maintenance, occupant safety and a complete explanation of the dynamics of hull design. Time is spent on the specifics of trimming, tabbing, acceleration, deceleration, turning, wave and wake crossing and how to take corrective action in the event of a problem.
On day two, the students get a first hand demonstration of everything they have learned in a real world environment. The students are shown how to operate essential equipment, conduct pre-launch checks, basic maintenance and potential problem areas. Then each student must properly execute all of the performance fundamentals and complete maneuvers in their boats until they are able to demonstrate proper execution to the satisfaction of the instructors.
