The format throughout is a woman lecturing. She does a fine job of reading the scripts, but I expected much more from a DVD. Topics like trailering, docking, knots, navigation, and more would have been excellent if actual video of boats had been used to demonstrate. Instead, its just 3 hours of a nice lady lecturing, and a few marginally useful graphics. This DVD is little more than a book read onto a DVD and much less useful than a book.
I'm still looking for a good DVD or video that demonstrates boating tips, as such a video would be very useful to beginners or others.
