Do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. I suggest you take a boaters safety course. Most states now require them anyway.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My kids got me a 365-day sailing knowlege calendar for Christmas. So every day I get to test myself. One of the questions was, "According to the Coast Guard, what percentage of recreational boaters have a rudimentary understanding of the rules of the road?" Answer? Ten percent.

I was depressed. Always assume the other guy a) doesn't see you, or b) thinks he's the stand-on vessel. Sort of like riding a motorcycle....

So be one of those 10 percent - take at least a boating safety course!

Cheers!

I learned last Saturday night "the 50' rental houseboat has right-of-way". I yelled at him, though.

1000 foot freighters also have the right of way.

sailing knowledge calendar

pmoyer, I would be interested in knowing where your kids got the sailing knowledge calendar. Sounds like a great gift idea. Can you find out and let me know. Thanks!
