AT YOUR SERVICE MEMBERSHIP NEWS
GoeS The exTra MIle
Thanks for the great customer service! BoatU.S. and Walt’s Towing saved us from a potentially dangerous ituation after we lost a trailer wheel bearing on the road near Gibsons, B.C. The response time was quick, and both BoatU.S. and Walt’s went way beyond the norm
to make sure we were able to get the bearing fixed that evening. In
fact, we still made it to our destination that night. It’s nice knowing
there are companies out there that still offer great customer service.
GET YOURSELF TESTED!
Now is a great time to brush up on your boating skills and take the
online boating safety course offered through the BoatU.S. Foundation
Online Learning Center. This free and interactive test is certified in
most states and has been approved by the National Association of
State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA). It’s also recognized by
the U.S. Coast Guard as exceeding the minimum requirements for
the National Recreational Boating Safety Program. Completion of
the test may also reduce your boat-insurance costs. (Individual states
may charge additional fees for their officially recognized boating cards.) For
information about your state’s boating education requirements and
course options, visit www.BoatUS.com/onlinecourse.
