I'm sorry, I disagree with you JnT,
It SHOULD be required reading for ANYONE that is boating on Navigable waters, which includes ALL inland lakes and waterways.

Just MY opinion, you can do with it what you want.

I got my 100 ton NC license about 4 1/2 years ago.I'm only good out to 200 miles but have not needed the Oceans endorsement yet. Ran a 120 foot oilfield utility boat almost a year and learned a LOT about boat handling. Let me know if you need any info or tips on getting through all the Coast Guard stuff for the test.

I agree that there's not many people that care about boathandling skills in the HOTROD crowd, but there are a few. The "Old School" guys that come to mind are, Stinson(sorry guys), TooOld, Ed Cozzy, AudioFN, Plastered, RiceHauler, Nykamp, WickedWon, Buca, AttitudeAdjustment, DJD, and the "JESTER" that took me by the hand when I was just a young pup and showed me the ins-and-outs of boating in the Fl. Keys. And talk about "old school", anyone want some olives from Greece? I have several gallons from my Father-In-Law, and D A M N are they GOOD!

They all handle different.A Bertram or Hatteras sportfish will spin on a dime and back sweet.A 220 foot Supply boat is sluggish and is like moving a Hotel Single engine trawlers are hell to back down.Sailboats....ummmm....never mind....uhhh Crockett had one on Miami Vice!.Never docked a twin engine go-fast. Hopefully Tonto will give me some lessons!

Come on over! I'll introduce you to "crashboxes". Probably the one most important thing in "high performance" boating that makes one think about what they are fixing to do, and what they are going to do. All while having a cocktail, a cigarette, and eating my bowl of olives.
