  1. DRIVER EDUCATION CHAPTERS 1 AND 2 OF BOATING MANUAL LEE SMITH ROD ISAAC JEROME FRANKS

  2. Safe Boating The keys: • Your knowledge • Your experience • What you continue to learn

  3. Boat Orientation Objectives: • Identify parts of various boats • List hull types and shapes • List Vessel Classes • Define Types of Motors • Define Capacity Plate as lbs or People • Explain the Importance of a Float Plan

  4. Introduction to Boats

  5. Introduction to Boats, cont. Introduction to Boats, cont.,

  6. Hull Types • 2 Basic Types of Hulls: Displacement & Planing

  7. Length of a Vessel Vessel’s overall length determines the equipment required to comply with federal and state laws.

  8. Length Classes • Class A - Less than 16 feet • Class 1 - 16 feet to less than 26 feet • Class 2 - 26 feet to less than 40 feet • Class 3 - 40 feet to less than 65 feet

  9. Outboard • Portable Self-Contained Unit Attached To The Transom • Steering is controlled by a Tiller, swivels the engine.

  10. Inboard • Mounted inside the hull’s midsection or in front of the transom • Steering is controlled by a rudder behind the propeller.

  11. Stern Drive • Also know as Inboard/Outboards (I/Os) • Attached through the transom to a a drive unit • Steering is controlled by the outdrive, swivels like outboard

  12. Jet Drive

  13. Personal Watercraft

  14. Personal Watercraft, cont. • PWC – uses an inboard jet drive, less than 16 feet

  15. Sailboats • Wind Powered • Range in Size & Complexity • Four Main Components: • Hull • Rigging • Keel • Rudder

  16. Boat Capacity • # of people  = vessel length (ft.)  x  vessel width (ft.)/ 15

  17. Plan Ahead – Manage Risks

  18. Float Plan • Why? • Includes What Type of Information? • When Is The Plan Prepared? • Plan Provided To? • Modifications To The Plan? • Plan Completion?

  19. Fueling Your Vessel • Never smoke or strike a match while fueling or when near fueling dock • Try to fuel in daylight. If light is needed, use a flashlight or spark proof light • Check fuel lines for leaks;replace cracking hoses; tighten connections frequently • Turn off engines and electrical equipment; shut off fuel valves; close all windows, doors and openings

  20. Trailering Your Vessel Have the right trailer for your vessel: • Width and length of vessel determine width and length of trailer • Weight of vessel, engine and gear should not exceed 90% of trailer’s recommended load capacity

  21. Trailering Your Vessel (cont.) • Coupler size must match the size of the ball hitch -- never use a ball hitch that is too small: • Size rating will be stamped on the ball • On the trailer, size will be stamped on the coupler

  22. Vessel Maintenance • Keep engine well tuned • Check oil and fluid levels before every outing • Change oil according to the owner’s manual • Make sure battery connections are tight, clean and free of corrosion • If battery is weak when you start the engine, recharge it • Keep exterior of engine clean • Check engine for anything that requires tightening, repairing or replacing • Never use automotive electrical parts; use marine parts only

  23. First, Get There • Remember, as a beginner, never go boating on your own. Once you have decided what you want to do with your boat and how you want to use it, talk to others who can help you to choose the best boat for your boating purpose. Then begin by practicing your new boating skills in calm, protected waters before trying more difficult waters.
