BOATING BASICS
This publication has been produced by two experienced members of the Merchant Navy Association Boat Club with the aim of providing basic information for anyone venturing onto the water for the first time.  The idea is to help make the experience more enjoyable and safer, both for you the reader and for other users of the waterways. As we anticipate that most of those likely to benefit will be planning to hire a boat on inland waterways, rather than taking to the sea, we have concentrated on how to handle a boat on rivers, canals, lakes, the Broads  etc. but many of the practices we describe would apply equally when taking to the sea. When we first published this guide we were delighted to have been contacted by several boat-hire companies both in the UK and in France with a request to purchase a quantity of these guides on CD to give to their clients, especially those clients with no previous boat-handling experience, when they book a hire cruiser.  We are happy to continue to supply this guide on CD at cost plus a small donation to our Boat Club funds -   for further information please contact:  commodore@seafarersafloat.com
