It would seem that having an experienced instructor on our own boat would be way more valuable than a canned ASA course or similar (our experience with those in Texas was not particularly enlightening....).

Is there anyone who provides this type of service in the southern Maine area?

Thanks a lot!

SailMaine, in Portland, will give you private lessons on your boat. The price was pretty reasonable when I did it a few years ago.
