I have been asked for a resume; no one has ever asked to see my logbook.

I once asked a charter base manager how he knew that I had not made up my resume. He responded that it was the way I "approached" the boat. I remember being asked how many times I had anchored, specifically on two anchors. Safe anchoring and docking are probably bigger concerns that your actual ability to sail.

Moorings is the most formal of all the companies I have dealt with; they issue a card indicating what, where and under what conditions you can sail.

Enjoy. When you are going?
