Seeing that I am licensed already, 1600 ton Master/2nd Mate unlimited, and have to renew it every five years with a in depth physical along with a radar recertification, each time for me because I have had a heart episode awhile back. It still costs me $145 each time I renew.
But some states do require a short boater's education of only a few short hours, such as Oregon does. I've looked at this course and was amazed on how simple it was. Very simple, anyone who attends that course still could not pass the tests that I have taken from the USCG. But it does give an inkling of the responsibility required when operating a boat. Which is better than nothing.
