As a new boater, and any experienced boater, please make certain you have all the safety gear required on board before you leave the dock. Life jackets, throwable ring, fire extinguishers etc. Make certain all passengers know where the jackets are and what to do if a problem were to arise. We all want everyone to have a great time and recommend boating to others.

If you can connect with the closest US Sail & Power Squadron you might make some worthwhile connections...
Good education courses and a great way to network w/ other knowledgeable boaters.

One other thing to add. It's already been suggested you take a safe boating course. Among the many benefits of taking such a course is that upon completion many insurance companies give a discount for having completed such a course. 5% is common.

I don't know if you have found it yet, but here is a link to the Owner's Manual for your boat; https://carveryachts.blob.core.windows. ... l-boat.pdf

Do you boat on Turtle Creek Lake? Not a lot of "big water" around your area.

Good luck!

Tip 1. When docking always throw the center line first :pirate:
