US Power Squadrons Demonstration of Virtual Trainer at MDCE Orlando FL
At the Marine Dealer Conference and Exhibition (MDCE) this year in Orlando I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Herndon. She was talking to a lot of dealers and attendees at the show about the US Power Squadrons latest project – the Virtual Trainer. It’s the result of a grant, the first of its kind and a really neat way to practice/learn how to drive a recreational power boat.
The Virtual Trainer has 9 exercises, is multi-lingual (Spanish and French). You’ll be departing the dock on a 20′ Boston Whaler with a real mercury marine throttle. There are posed exercises to be used with an instructor to help with rules of the road, docking exercises, mooring, navigational, plus more.
