Re: Are You The Operator Underway?

In an aircraft, there is a clear distinction drawn between the Pilot in Command and the Sole Manipulator of the Controls. They can be the same, but may not be. The PIC doesn't transfer and remains both in command and fully responsible for the aircraft, even when not manipulating the controls. I think this makes more sense.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
