You can bring a horse to water but you can't make her think.
Though the water is regulated... it's also seen as a environment of *personal freedom* that the old wild west. Most know and follow the rules and sensible behavior. Too many don't and size is not the determinant as the Costa Concordia or the Exxon Valdez demonstrate.
An intelligent sailor or boater or mariner knows where to find the information these days... all now accessible from a smart phone they carry 24/7.
There dumb and willful ignorance and a fair amount who can't afford what they need and punt.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
