Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

There was a scene in the book where the anchor had to be raised. Joyce refused to do that job and insisted on helming.
She almost crashed the boat.
I usually do the anchor duty as my wife really can't, knee problems.
This is a tough one.
In Glenn's case Joyce had a really bad attitude about everything.
But even so It is a risk I always think about.
Is it safer to do both bow and stern myself or safer to put someone who may not be that competent or confident on the helm.
It is a tough call?
