Are you a boating enthusiast? Do your clients take cruises? Do your children enjoy riding wave runners at the shore? Have you, your clients or your friends ever operated a boat after consuming alcohol? Have you dreamed of quitting your "day job" and sailing round the world?
You might be wondering what kind of CLE these questions could be a teaser for!
