Boats and cars are all potentially lethal toys surely the best route has to be, get some good basic training (preferably with a qualified person) and then gain experience with other boaters

I think standardized training is very important. Its soo much better if every one follows the same rules.
I am sure we have all been out there and got really pi++ed off with morons who cut in front of you and generally demonstrate shocking seamanship skills etc.
