I was responding in that post (quoted in fact) to a poster that asks how you bareboat coming fresh from training and I explained how its done.

Certainly, I have no issue with bareboating in the Caribbean, but how did you get this was about me or you?

For what it's worth, the liveaboard course is not camping, it's work. They will tell you not to bother bringing your mask and snorkel.
