The goal of the National Safe Boating Council’s BoatOnCourse.com is to introduce and bring awareness to The Navigation Rules. By educating the boating public on twelve areas of the Navigation Rules: Nav Rules - Responsible Boating, Overtaking, Crossing, Meeting Head On, Safe Speed, Proper Lookout. Nav Rules: The Sequel - Sound Signals, Navigation Lights, Sailing, Exclusion Zones, Commercial Vessels, Narrow Channels.
BoatOnCourse.com is hosted by Tina with Tim, the Boating Safety Guide. Together, they will cover the Navigation Rules and compare these rules to the "rules of the road", something that everyone is familiar with. To help them explain the rules, they will use different "scenarios", whether it is driving in a car or using real boats to show the actual implementation of these rules.
