Re: Know the rules!

What gets me is that the _required_ class in this state gets you about as much knowledge as is required for a learner's permit for your car, maybe less. (I teach the boating class, but I'm just guessing about the learner's permit part)

And yet, it qualifies the holder of the certificate to drive a boat as large as a big-rig on the highway (ok, a _small_ big-rig, but you get the point).

The best we can do with that class is hope that they realize that there is so much more to know than we can teach them and maybe, just maybe they'll go out and learn more from other sources.
