Insurance companies occasionally require owners that have moved up in size to have specific training on their boat. In this case the owner requires someone to take him out for 40 hours and certify with a ladder that he's done the items insurance Company requests.
I've done this several times in past years and the letter typically says that I have reviewed rules of the road and general boating
theory for two hours practice stocking and departure for 24 hours consisting of both upwind and down wind docking
I reviewed sail. Management safety
with specific Emphasis on the furling equipment
employed on the owner's boat. I review the engine
systems the pre-departure check in the emergency
procedures unique to this vessel. Specific attention was given to the fire control systems and do you watering systems installed on the boat.
I've also gone over the emergency
systems ensuring that the new owner knew how to operate the GPS
, place a routine call on the VHF
, and operate the VHF
and, if installed, the EPERB in an emergency.
The result is a three-page letter delivered for the insurance company not a US Coast Guard license
