I got my novice license when I was 16 (WN6TZE), 35 years ago, and passed my advanced class at 17. I studied a book that was written for the tests and also used the Amateur Radio Handbook. I practiced morse code until I could do 20 WPM.
I haven’t been active for the last 25 years and I believe the morse code requirements have changed. A lot of the test has to do with the rules and requirements, which you should know when using a transmitter.
If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble.
