The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 54 in Boynton Beach is working with the Perry J. Cohen Foundation to make sure boaters are educated before they go out in the water.

The foundation is paying for a safe-boating class Saturday. It is a PowerPoint class from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Harvey Oyer Park on Federal Highway.

The course encompasses boat handling, seamanship, necessary safety equipment, docking, line handling and knot-tying, heavy weather running conditions, rules of the road, elementary navigation, and new federal and state laws.

Each student will be given a certificate of completion and the information will be forwarded to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for a safe boating card.

To enroll, call 561-331-2429.
