As water beckons, boaters need to get education cards

The sun is out.  The open water beckons.

And you’re thinking this may be the summer you take up boating.

Start by getting a Washington State Boater Education card. They’re required for anyone 50 and under operating a boat or personal watercraft of 15 horsepower or greater. Go to www.boat-ed.com/washington and find out how to take a boating-safety course, in the classroom or online.

And for the first time, the manual developed for the classroom course is available as an e-book for $2.99 that can be downloaded for a PC, Mac, iPad, or iPhone.
