Good morning ABC Southern NSW,

I attended the ABC 'BSC with Practical' course at Batemans Bay yesterday (10 Feb) conducted by Gary Overton.

Additionally to the course feedback form which the other students and I completed on the day, I would like to add the following points:

The course was extremely well run by Gary.

His technical boating knowledge is very extensive and all student questions were answered, no matter how "left field", to the students' satisfaction.

He displayed a very high level of trainer ability and was very patient with us (a number of us had very limited boating knowledge prior to the course).

Additionally, he made the course fun, with amusing anecdotes and boating yarns, all of which also demonstrated important boating safety points.

I will highly recommend ABC boating courses to friends, acquaintances and work colleagues.

My wife is also very happy that I done the course as she is looking forward to lots of (safe) boating in our new boat.

Many thanks,



May I express my gratitude to ABC in respect of the Licence Course I attended yesterday. The trainer Mr Markus Muller was nothing short of professional, easy to understand and thorough. I will be recommending the course to all persons I hear are wishing to study for and obtain a boat licence. Prior to the attending the course my wife and I did numerous 'trial tests' on the CD we obtained from NSW Maritime. I also read through the book ABC recommended. Yesterday due to Mr Muller's professional approach, it all came together. Nothing like face to face teaching, actually being out on the water etc etc. Again thankyou.

Glenys and Gary
