Learn to drive a boat with Discover Boating

(WTNH)–So, you want to buy a boat? Well, there’s plenty at the Norwalk Boat Show.

But, whether you want to spend $2.2 million on a giant, awesome-looking vessel, or something closer to $20,000, you’re going to need to know how to drive it. That’s where Discover Boating comes in.

“What we try to do is, we coach them through and we show them, there’s no need for drama. It’s really, really simple, and we give them the skills to polish up and make them feel at ease,” said Discover Boating instructor Tom Knighten.

“With a power boat, everything is going on in the back of the boat, because of the engine,” said instructor Jeff Lewis. “It’s mounted in the back, and it’s very difficult for people who are used to driving cars.”

Our own Noah Finz took a trip out on the seas, and he has this report.
