You just sign him up for one of the boating safety classes. I was talking to one of the class guys at the show yesterday - He said for $75 a head and at least 8 people he will hold it in your house (I want my 13 and 15 year old to take the class this year and my nephew)- $65 if you go to one of their class locations. They hold them in your area at MT Holly Elks Club. Two Nights 7 to 10:30pm - If you want dates and contact info let me know.

Just got done running my John Deere tractor - I would say easily two plus feet of snow. How are you making out with this fun white stuff?

They dont have to wait till they are sixteen. Once they turn 13 they can run the 13 Whaler with a 9.9 on it as long as they have taken the safety course. When they turn 16 then they can run bigger or more HP. This is from NJ State Police site...

"There are two minimum ages, 13 years old for vessels powered by electric trolling motors, or vessels 12' or longer with less than 10 total HP.

Operators of all other power vessels, including personal watercraft, must be at least sixteen years old, this includes out-of-state residents."
