Going's work with inflatable boats dates from the introduction of Boston Whaler inflatables in 1978. He spent many years with Zodiac of North America, teaching its recreational service training program, and was factory-trained at Zodiac facilities in France and Spain.

Going also was an instructor with the Zodiac Maritime Academy, teaching care, driving and maintenance of inflatable boats and RIBs.
