I was a sailing & powerboat instructor for fifteen years back east (part time). I have over 10,000 hours of helm experience including all the time spent aboard during my youth. Sail and power vessels, generally under 42 feet. I had a close working relationship with our local law enforcement agencies and US Coast Guard station.

And one last thing, please never take your eyes off of any neighboring traffic. Many inland and novice operators do not have a good idea of how traffic laws function at sea, whether in a lake or ocean. Often there is a lot of drinking going on, especially on weekends or during peak vacation times. Always expect that a collision course, will result in a collision (i.e. assume the "other guy" doesn't have a clue).
Great advice!!! Thank you
