This introductory video presented under the Boater's Highway Code title was prepared by the specialists of the world famous and respected Bennett Marine Video & Boating Magazine to provide the required rules of the road and navigation aids. This interesting and practical video training film was released in 2003 but is still very actual and helpful as the training material. On a highway, we follow all the established rules of the road, or at least most of them instinctively.
On the water, we also have the rules of road. However, unfortunately, they are not exactly the same as the rules we have on the highways. But it is a matter of the great importance for the mariners to be fully aware and have a thorough understanding of the rules of the road since this plays critical role in safe navigation and will directly affect safety of the vessel and of the crew members as well as the environment and many other matters. Take your time and watch the film, it will definitely add to your navigating skills and awareness.
