Susan & Jim MacDonald, who took a Docking course with Captain Don Boccuti in June 2013, included the following comments in their course survey:
We thoroughly enjoyed Captain Don Boccuti's
teaching/coaching style. We learned so much from him and we are extremely
satisfied with his demeanor, knowledge and of course, patience.
The staff was excellent from the beginning of our
interactions, straight through to completion of the course.
"Scholarship" is a beauty. We were a little apprehensive when we first booked the course, as to the boat's condition. But when Michele said that the air-conditioning would be "on", the ice box would have a block of ice and that she would "leave a light on" for us, we knew we were in very good hands. The Island Packet was perfect for us during our two day course. Since we have returned from our course, we are spreading the word in our boat club, and to anyone else that will listen to us.
