Therefore i was correct that the test isn't only common sense
-i, nor anyone said it was ONLY common sense. fantastic point
i was talking about a strong wind warning the whole time if that was only a windy rainstorm they wouldn't have made it a wind warning
- yet you were addressing knowing the classifications of windspeeds in regards to being testable subject matter, a classification of windspeed =/ wind warning. moderate winds is not a wind warning.
Maybe its just me but personally i think flipping a boat is a bit more serious than scraping your knee and i trust the coast guard will be able to ask the appropriate questions to rank the seriousness to other calls.
- and therefore the ABSOLUTE VERY FIRST thing you should do is call the coastguard? before say, you dont have your lifejacket or ensure the safety of everyone involved? good logic
It is important to know the order yes, but knowing the exact value really doesn't matter that much and i have driven boats off the northern tip of the Vancouver island and not once was knowing the exact value necessary
- not sure when i said knowing the exact value was necessary.... that is the point of a wind classification
hearing gale force wind means get off the water, knowing whether it is 40 or 41 really doesn't matter unless you are driving a very large vessel in which case it is highly unlikely that a on line boaters test is the only certification you would posses.
- again... that is the exact point of a wind classification, not sure what you are trying to argue.
do i still have no idea what im talking about because i just shot down every single point you presented......moron.
- youre right, you did a fantastic job. good on you
you are absolutely right, my bad on the tiller thing haha. around where i am most people dont own one above 30, while most have 9.9's because you used to be able to operate under 10hp without a license/under 16.
about being told what you did wrong, i meant in terms of it being recorded. youre supposed to be told what you answer incorrectly on your boaters license test, i personally do not know anyone who wasnt.
and you are again right, i never said that test is meant to replace a lifetime of knowledge, in the same way that your driving test does not immediately make you an expert driver, if that were the case, vancouver would not be filled with as many shitty drivers as there are. my point was that it is to prove that you are a competent
boater, in the same way that taking your driving test says you know the rules of the road and cannot claim negligence when you run a stop sign or speed, and again, there is nothing to say that you cant get your drivers license and then go buy a lamborghini or ferarri, in fact, there are hundreds of news reports of idiots who have no idea how to drive who smash up their cars. same thing applies to boats. that was my point, any idiot can get their boaters or drivers license, the actual licensing and testing is a way to hold you liable for your actions.
