Licensed captain? HA! I know of a non-boater that passed his USCG written by taking one of those 5 day take the test at the end crash courses, lied his way through the expereince portion of his USCG app, and now has his 6-pack. A license often is not worth the paper that it is printed on. If you run out of fuel as a private pilot in the US your ticket can be pulled, as it should be. Of course flying or sailing has many similarities, but at least boaters don't need to fall out of the sky.

Sailaway; those 7 P's are good, a little vulgar for proper company, but then just abreviate to the 6 P's. Well done!
