    Do you have a boat? If so, have you taken the USCG Aux. Saftey Course?
    Do you have your Cap'ts. licence?

    I have a bass boat. I have not taken any course or earned a captain's license. Although I do demand that all passengers refer to me as Captain.

    I do.

    I have.

    I used to have a six-pack license and do whale watching trips in the San Juan's.


    (And I'm very wary of Bayliner Bob's!)

    I own a 19' aluminum fishing boat and a 23' sailboat. I hold a 3,000T Master's (Oceans) license. I've never taken the Aux course but it couldn't hurt. My Compac 23:

    And do you keep knee pads on board? Those non slip decks can rough, I've heard.

    Yes I have a boat and a waverunner. Benn driving boats since I was 14, so that makes 18 years now. No I have not taken that class, but I do have a captain's hat! So yes I am a captain! I don't need a license to prove it!

    I've never owned a boat But I took the Coast Guard course with my brother when he bought his. I enjoyed it a lot. MY brother sold his boat about 6-8 years later and I have probably forgotten most of it by now.

    I've got a small aluminum fishing boat. Its a 1969 Monarch 14' flat bottom. I just run an electric trolling motor because all or most the lakes in my area worth fishing are electric only lakes.

    I haven't taken any classes and don't plan on it.

    I've also always wanted a family fun type boat like a party barge, something to take the family out and go swimming/fishing and barbeque on but my little aluminum boat is ok for now.

    I got a buddy who has a Caravelle Interceptor for sale cause they don't use it a lot.

    Just remember to put in the bilge plug BEFORE you launch the boat. :D
