BOATING SKILLS AND SEAMANSHIP

Lesson 1

Which Boat is For You

Approved by DC-E USCG AuxA, Inc

good seamanship
Good Seamanship
  • SIZE OF BOAT
  • COST OF BOAT

The Basic Principles of GOOD SEAMANSHIP

apply regardless of

OR

SAFE BOATING ISNO ACCIDENT

lesson objectives
Importance of Boating Safety

How to talk about boats and motors

Variety of boats and motors

Boat hull types and boat use

Essentials of Boat Construction

Match boats to needs

Boat defects, contracts, & insurance

Lesson Objectives
boaters language
Much derived from ancient sailing days

Norwegian rudder was a “STJORN”

(pronounced starn)

STJORN BOARD was on right side of vessel – facing to front

Right of vessel became

STARBOARD

Boaters Language

Boaters Language
  • Left Side of Vessel was next to Dock (Port side) again facing front
  • The Loading Board was on the LEFT side
  • LOAD BOARD became LARBOARD
  • LARBOARD / STARBOARD sounded too much alike
  • LARBOARD changed to PORT
  • PORT - STARBOARD

Outboards
  • Disadvantages
    • Higher RPM
    • Less efficient Operation
    • EPA
    • May require a transom cutout
  • Advantages
    • Easy to Service
    • Take up less room
    • Less weight per
    • HP
    • Trim the drive
stern drives
Stern Drives

Advantages

Quieter

Better Fuel Economy

Lower RPM

Trim the drive

Disadvantages

More weight per HP

Loss of Deck Space

Lower unit Gearing Problems

Danger of Fire & Explosion

inboard drives
Advantages

Simple gearbox & straight shaft

All machinery but prop in boat

Engine centered and balanced

Good control for skiers

Disadvantages

Poor rudder control, esp.

at slow speed & reverse

May disrupt deck space

Thrust upward vs parallel to surface

Inboard Drives
jet drive
Safety – no propeller

Operate in shallows

High speed

No prop walk

More slippage

Need power to steer

May be noise

Boat Construction

Aluminum

Light weight

Difficult to protect from Marine Growth

Susceptible to Electrolysis

Good Heat Conductor

Noisy

Wood

Workability

Relatively expensive

Strong but heavy

Considerable maintenance

Declining availability

fiberglass
Fiberglass

Fiberglass layers / strands saturated with resin

Advantages

No seams or joints

Strong

Molded into any desired shape

Low maintenance

Easily protected against Marine growth

Disadvantages

Heavy – Heavier than water

Easy to cover up shoddy work

Resins that bind will burn

Construction Process

Matched Die Process

Male and female molds used

Clamped together with Laminate between

Sandwich Process

Core material covered with layers of fiberglass

Usually Balsa Wood – sometimes Foamed Plastics or Plywood

Strong and Buoyant
