BOATSmart Promo Code: $10 Off Pleasure Craft Operator Cards

Love boating? Yes? Then you need a Pleasure Craft Operator Card! Get it for $10 less at BOATsmart.

Click here to get your PCOC @ BoatSmartExam.com

  • Coupon Code: BOATLOVE14
  • Discount: Get $10 off your Boat License Exam
  • Expiry: Unknown

Summer is almost here and if you want to take the boat out, you need one of these cards. Plain and simple. It’s the law. The law, unfortunately, requires you to pay. Normally the exam is $49.95 at BOATsmart but you can get it for $10 less with this coupon. You only pay $39.95. Pretty good deal, amirite?

This gets you the course, the exam, the card mailed to you and free retries. If you fail, you don’t have to pay again, which is fantastic. The PCOC is also like luggage, it stays with you for life. It doesn’t expire on your birthday like my drivers license does. Just on a tangent here for a minute but isn’t it the height of stupidity that your license expires on your birthday? Maybe it’s just my province but whatever the case, it’s dumb.

You get your boat permit and you’re set forever. You can even go boating on your birthday instead of waiting in line in some office waiting to renew.

I’m not outdoorsy at all, but I definitely like boating: canoe, kayak, bathtub with an outboard motor, whatever. It’s just fun to be out on the water. I think it’s fun because it can be anything you want. You can have a loud, boisterous party on a boat or you can sit in the middle of a calm lake all by yourself. You can go fishing. You can boat to an island to do some exploring. You can use your boat to rob rich yacht-ers off the coast of Newfoundland or Somalia.

Now, if you’re going to be a Somalian pirate in Canada, you’re going to need a Pleasure Craft Operator Card or Boat License, PCOC, or whatever you want to call it. The best way to do that is by using this coupon from BoaterExam. You get $10 off the $49.99 price. You’re only paying $39.99. That will get you the study guide, the exam and a PCOC. You also get unlimited tries to pass the exam.

If you’re going to be running a boat with any kind of motor, the government says you need this. I know a lot of boaters think it’s dumb and just a money grab, which is possible, but if I’m going to be on the water, I want to at least know that the other boaters on the water with me can read enough to pass an exam. It’s kind of comforting.

Amazon Canada: 35% Off 7′ Ponderay Frameless Pontoon Boat – Now $289

Posted by on August 4, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 35% Off 7 Ponderay Frameless Pontoon Boat   Now $289

Want to do some fishing this summer? Or, maybe just enjoy the water while not actually being in the water. Pick up this Classic Accessories Ponderay Frameless Pontoon Boat in navy/grey for just $288.66, originally $444.76.

The boat handles up to 350 lbs, which means I could stick both me and my hubby on it… woohoo! I’m not sure it is made for more than one person, though. It features:

  • Seven foot pontoons for stability
  • Hydrodynamic hull shape for easy tracking and steering
  • Boat and three-piece oars disassemble into a compact size
  • Two large zippered cargo pockets on the pontoons, and rear fabric storage platform with a large zippered pocket above
  • Big pocket on seat back with mesh bottom for drainage and quick-release stripping apron with fish ruler
  • Class i river rating

This looks like a whole lot of fun. I have a strong love of water and being on the water. This little boat is perfect for paddling around on a lake or down a gentle river.  I like how open the boat is, and I also think that all the storage compartments would come in very handy.

Enjoy free shipping on orders of $25 or more!

I have never lived near a pond of water big enough nor near enough to justify investing in a boat nor a licence. But all that has suddenly changed since I moved to Vancouver Island. It is an island, I am surrounded by water. Suddenly I am motivated to learn to drive a boat. To do so, I would need to take my Pleasure Craft Operator exam (and pass) to get my card.

For $49.95 (minus the $15 you save with promo code) you get the study guide, exam and permanent operator card. Yes, permanent – once you have one of these you can’t get it taken away. Well, I am sure if the coastguard was properly motivated…! The course study guide takes at least three hours with quizzes. However, if you choose to boat without an operator card you are risking not only your life, bot other people’s lives, and a large fine because you don’t know how to properly handle the boat you are operating. Safety first!

Canada Day weekend is fast approaching, finally! For that weekend we are heading to my mom’s boat, where we will spend the weekend lounging, eating, lounging, and more lounging. We will also ride their sea-doo, but in order to do so, we need our Pleasure Craft Operator’s Licence. You also need to be 16 or over, which unfortunately, I am. To get my licence, I will need to register with an accredited (by Transport Canada) course provider, like Boat Smart.

For $49.95 (minus the $10 you save with promo code) you’ll get your online study guide, your PCOC exam and the mailing of your permanent operator card. Plus, if you fail, you get free retries! I think that is an amazing deal, much unlike your driver’s licence, where if you fail you have to keep paying (and I know this pain well, but I’m not opening that can of worms).

The course study guide is three hours long (minimum) and you must pass quizzes at the end of each learning module. If you want to get out there on the water and be in control and not get a very large ticket ($250!), take the small amount of time and money and get your Boatsmart  licence!

AceBoater Canada: Get $10 Off Your Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC)

Posted by on May 19, 2013 at 8:00 PM

AceBoater Canada: Get $10 Off Your Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC)

Gonna run a boat? You need a license. Get it at Ace Boaters Canada and save!

Click here to get your PCOC @ AceBoater.com

  • Coupon Code: ACEBOATER1
  • Discount: $10 off PCOC
  • Expiry: Unknown

These are the basics of the law we’re talking about here:

The boating license is now mandatory for all operators of motorized pleasure craft. Even if you are not the owner, when you operate a motorized boat, you must have proof of competency. There’s no minimum age to obtain the boat card. Regardless of the driver’s age, everyone is required to have the same same card.

The boat license is valid for life and allows you to operate all motorized pleasure craft (including electric motors) throughout Canada. If you do not have your operator card with you, you are subject to a $250 fine.

You can get the entire rundown of the PCOC and the coupon code on the Ace Boaters site.

If you’re on this site, it’s because you want to save money and I suspect that, for most of you, a $250 fine is not part of your overall money saving scheme. The course is $49.95, and you save $10 with this coupon. That means it’s only gonna cost you $39.95. There are extras you can add on, too. If you want three cards, it’ll be an extra $9.95 and a printed study book will be $19.95. The course is online and shipping is FREE for your card and the physical book, if you choose to get it.

For more deals from Ace Boater, stop by the Bargainmoose forum.
