Some pretty scarey numbers if you consider 65% of all boaters really have no clue.It bears scrutiny simply because of complaints of poor seamenship.
We have seen in other threads a very quick if not even an angry response to power yachters who are percieved as being less educated for just showing up on a forum board when in fact 65% of those complaining have no experinance.It would appear a huge proportion of all boating
segments are the reason for the problems.Most boaters have never taken a single

who see's an oppourtunity to protect you while taking more of your money
