There is so much to learn about a new boat! Not just how she sails and/or motors — and how to start the engine, check the oil, deploy the anchor and so on — but all the other systems as well.
Where do the water lines run? Where are the thru-hulls? Where are the bilge pumps? How are they wired? How do I turn them on?
The list goes on and on. It’s stuff you really need to know, but how do you learn it without going nuts?
