Thanks for replies...a lot more amusing than the night class....
Kept the apple core and orange peel(Dont eat much on my little boat on Windermere) because I reckon that orange peel takes ages to rot down and so I can't chuck it overboard....

Had enough of the homework for today..

Also: If you're on your rib, slow down, listen for other fog horns because your engine is loud. Hopefully you know where you are, so keep away from shipping lanes if poss. Keep a good watch. You are very manoeuvrable, others may not be.

On the engine noise. If you have twin engines they are able to develop a beat which is VERY like a close fog horn. Do NOT presume it is an engine beat, it could be a fog horn. Been there, done that. Very alarming to have a large vessel loom out of the mist 50mtrs off your bow!

Old joke

Yacht on encountering unlit naval ship in thick fog.

Yacht:- "What ship?"
Ship:- "HMS .........., What vessel?"
Yacht:- "Yacht Silly Sod"
HMS ...:- "Yacht Silly Sod, you are the middle of a high speed training exercise, clear the area at best speed."
Yacht:- "Which way at 3 kts?"
HMS...:-"Yacht Silly Sod, suggest you sink where you are."

One other thought

Moor up at the shallowest possible location . If you are going to be hit by anything , hope it's the same size or smaller than yourself !

One final thought...

Ade, just to let you know that I sat my Dayskipper chartwork assessment paper last night and, for a modest sum payable into my Jersey bank account, we may be able to come to some mutually agreeable arrangement

Can't afford a bribe cos I spent all my money on the course books. Am relying on multi choice questions and a monkey-mark of 25%....

RIBase
Just spotted on the RYA website, a CD "The Complete Course" product code A1.
This CD promises to cover all the Yachtmaster Course and much more besides.
Sounds good value at 49.95. Too good to be true?
Does anyone have any comments?

hi
i find it good,
you will need the training maps and tide book to get the best from it , in fact with out them its really pointless .Rya now do these in one set which i believe is better value than buying seperate,
what i find really good are the exercise and test question sections
it is whole lot cheaper than correspondance course
