That makes sense. I've seen some of these video as well. What you need to understand is that most of these charterers aren't just new, they are completely inexperienced and think they can just jump on a 40' boat and go smashing into everyone in the anchorage. They seem to make little or no attempt to learn basic seamanship.

I think most sailors want to help new sailors who want to learn, but will have problems with someone who is reckless.
