If you've ever considered getting your OUPV (Six Pack) or Master MMC (Merchant Mariner Credential), you'll be glad to know that there will be a class starting May 20th in Louisville at the St. Matthews Fire Station. This would be the ticket if you've considered running a fishing charter or boat for hire in your retirement.
The OUPV class will be put on by the True Course Captain's School, and is set up for two weekends, with weekday evenings in between. The towing endorsement, upgrade to Master, sailing endorsement, and Marine Radio Operator's License test is also on the schedule. There is a renewal class on May 30th for anybody needing a renewal, as well.
PortKY.com and BoatLocal.com have been partnering with Capt. Ron Getter since 2009 to bring this class to town, and those who attend find it to be a very worthwhile learning experience.

Also, you’ll find their flyer on the PortKY.com Facebook page!
(note: their site lists the March Louisville class which was rescheduled to May)
