Don't Waste Your Money!

By Big Bluewater

from Newport, RI

Comments about 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 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.

Comments about 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.
