Brian Leffler of Enosburg Falls, VT, asks:
I grew up around my grandparents cabin cruisers and spent 4 years as a sonar tech on destroyers and throughout my life I have always loved powerboats. What is the best way for someone to get started learning the basics needed to run a 40+ foot boat on offshore excursions?
I am greatly enjoying your log entries and have fond memories of sailing through some of the same waters. Fair winds and following seas.
I'd suggest that you attend the Trawlerfest events which are held on both coasts. You can get a schedule from their website - www.trawlerworld.com. Additionally, there's Passagemaker Magazine and others that will give a good insight into offshore cruising on powerboats.
