The National Marine Manufacturers Association said the Discover Boating Hands-On Skills Training series, which has been a success at boat shows across the country, is nearly sold out for the inaugural Progressive Insurance San Francisco Boat Show next week.

The program offers one-hour and three-hour workshops. The NMMA said the three-hour events nearly sold out this week with 24 spots reserved of 30 that were available.

The three-hour Advanced Docking & Precision Boat Control workshop did sell out. Because of the interest in that workshop, the show has added more space to accommodate interest, with an additional event on Jan. 24, 25 and 26.

Forty-five three-hour workshops will be offered at the show.

The NMMA said the one-hour events also are generating interest among area boaters, with 15 advance reservations booked out of 36 available spots.

The show, which runs from Jan. 23-26, will feature more than 100 boats for sale in McCovey Cove and on land inside Pier 48 and a variety of booths from the area’s leading dealers and retailers. There also will be sailing classes produced by Sail America, daily free seminars, a chance to try paddle sports and a Kids’ Zone.
