To make it official...

Your next step is to follow the directions below to purchase and download your Connecticut Safe Boating Certificate from the State's website.  If you have any problems, please call or email us as we are happy to help you with this.

Click “Next” on the PC or “Enter Sales” on the Mobile
Click “Boating” on the upper menu that appears
Click “Add” Safe Waterski Endorsement (SWE)*

*If you are under 16 years old, you must wait until the day you turn 16 to add the SWE.  If you go in and pay now, no money will be needed when you turn 16, just sign in, add the SWE and “Reprint” your certificate.  Remember you are not official until you go in and pay.
