      Comments about Bennett Marine The Coast Guard License DVD:

      This video consist of a guy sitting behind a desk and talking. Diagrams are presented, but there is no development of the rules or shapes.

      There is no question the guy knows what he is talking about. But listening to him talk about a subject he knows well is not teaching.

      Even though it was 75% off due to our local West Marine store closing, it wasn't worth it.

      Cannot recommend this one.

      Don't Waste Your Money!

      By Big Bluewater

      from Newport, RI

      Comments about Bennett Marine The Coast Guard License DVD:

      I got half way through the rules of the road section and just turned it off removed the DVD and tossed it in the trash. As stated above the diagrams are not correct and in more that one situation the interpretation of the rules of the road were just wrong! Incorrect day shape requirements and lighting requirements were given.

      Clarifies a Complex Subject

      Comments about Bennett Marine The Coast Guard License DVD:

      Actually, I took a look at the rules of the road and it is correct. It's very possible that the other reviewer got a preliminary copy. I am a long time sailor who learned from this DVD.

      Don't but this video

      Comments about Bennett Marine The Coast Guard License DVD:

      This product is not helpful, just confusing. Rules of the Road Section has the boat diagrams backwards. Company takes no resposibility.
