Well, I am really good at getting in way over my head and I think I did it. I know nothing about boating except the zodiacs we use. So I get a great idea.. Get a boat to have fun on between my wife's deployments and mine. How hard can it be right? So I get the boat, a 21 ft Glasstream for an extremely reasonable price then I get in to it and voila!! Bunch of stuff I have no idea about. I am great in a fishing boat with a outboard and basic terminology I can handle but all the buttons??? I am sure i can figure it out but never hurts to ask. What the heck is the difference between the trim and tilt? The little stick that says BOW DOWN/UP, STARBOARD DOWN/UP, etc... Bilge pump?? Not quite there yet. I am quite mechanically inclined but the water aspect of travel has managed to elude me, so I am here. Please feel free to treat me as your own child you are teaching no worries, I learn quick. Also I learned if you run a engine out of the water, you ruin your water pump and exhaust bellows. How 'bout that.
