Re: Newbie looking for experience and knowledge

Join the U.S. Power Squadron and take some of their courses. You'll meet a lot of boaters that way.


Get a job at a working marina. You'll learn more than you may want to.

Also, check out my website, the Frugal Mariner - lots of good stuff for newbies.

Good luck and welcome to the boating community. Lots of good folks you'll get to know!
