I found his wife OK, to be honest, I was a bit put out at the lack of knowledge imparted about trailer bearings....

He did a good job though - didn't feel the cold as much as I did!!

There is still one place on this course, that I am quite keen to fill!

Please get in touch if you would like to attend, even if you aren't a student, as I'm sure something can be sorted.

Cheeky sod!

No, we are not doing displacement work, as I've discussed it with the trainers, and they feel they can deliver a comprehensive and more continuous course using a range of planing boats.

You'll only know for sure once you've tried it, so why don't you come along and do the course... Bargain rates for the last space...

I was considering it although I have 2 more exams, the first one being on the 31st and the second being on the 1st (up here in Nottingham). Not a good time really, need to get some revision in really. Secondly, im probably not power boat instructor material as yet, although it is on my to do list for some point over the next few years. I have done a fair few hours (all logged) in a range of powerboats, although im not sure im ready to teach someone else how to do it just yet..... give me another season or so and I will sign up!
