Unless you are the only crew aboardand the rest are novice passengers, I see no reason that others need to know how to use the radio or start the motor.

On comment above about laminated head info--People do not read these things! Specific verbal instructions are needed.
We have electric heads with a FLUSH, FILL AND DRAIN button. Not one guest in the history of time has done it right and I've tried everything, verbal, dry demonstration and all. Even seasoned sailors fail to flush enough water, despite already knowing how to make it work.

5 simple steps on a laminated 5x8 card. We'll see if it helps, this is the first year we are using it.
