In response to 82 and 83. I simply don't have those people skills or that kind of patience! I was going to approach Capitan Clueless one more time, but decided I was very clear with the first offer, and another would be intrusive. After all, I doubt most people would even notice or care about the hazard, unless it was their boat he was endangering. Had an experienced Skipper made the same offer to me when I was a newbie, I would have jumped at the opportunity! In fact, I never took my boat out without an experienced skipper, until I honestly felt confident. In retrospect, I was probably overly cautious, but I never came in out of control! I'm just trying to share what was generously taught to me and what I've learned. However, I'm not going to make a career out of it!
