RE: 2010 Expert Speaker Series

Dear Fellow Boating Enthusiast:

Have you heard the awesome news?

Starting August 23rd, 2010, our first Expert Speaker Series (via internet) for this year will be held to arm boaters, like yourself, with vital secrets to save time and money buying the boat of your dreams. And how to protect you and your loved ones in case of an emergency while you're out cruising in your new watercraft.

Now that's a tall order, wouldn't you agree?

You already know buying a boat is one of the most challenging things you'll ever do in your life. And, it's an awesome way to include both your family and friends. Not to mention all the fun you'll have out on the water. 

Here's just a few things you'll learn from these telephone interviews:

    Do's and don'ts when buying a boat
  Two little known
tools surveyors use to determine a boat's age and condition
  Three surprizing reasons why marinas require the insurance they do
  How you can still get a boat loan even if your credit score is less than 720
  How a commercial emergency signaling technology has saved more than 25,000 lives since
        1982 and is now available for pleasure boaters
  What to do when you get caught in a bad storm or heavy weather
  Why customizing your electrical and instrument panels makes sense
  How Digital Selective Calling and the Automated Identification System save lives in a
        Search and Rescue operation
  The advantages and disadvantages of having a multihull craft over a monohull
 
Three powerful strategies you can use to best prepare your boat for rentals
  What's changed to take sailing from man amateur sport to top of the game earning a decent living
