After passing the test and making a presentation (and watching myself afterward on tape), I've become a Safe Boating Instructor. With the beautiful spring weather, sitting in a classroom with a view of the lake for two days was a bit of a challenge. The class was paid for by the New Mexico State Parks and presented by a team from the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and the National Safe Boating Council. We had a variety of participatnts, including parks rangers, US Coast Guard auxiliarists, a local teacher, a Boy Scout merit badge counselor, a boat shop owner, a local boating volunteer who is a wildland fire-fighting incident specialist, and a Navy Jr. Reserve Officer Training Program chief instructor.
