x100. I found it is easier to have the inexperience person to take the helm, especially if you have the autohelm. I use hand signal to communicate with the helms-lady especially for docking or picking up the mooring ball.
No screaming, no yelling, and no cursing. If we miss, just go around. It is not the end of the world. I am amazed how many evenings have bee ruined because of docking the damn boat.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
