Teaching the basics first. People who know how to operate a sailboat and a powered vessel know a lot more about how to operate a powered vessel than one who only knows how to operate a powered vessel.
Come on, old timer, just get with it!!! This is the 21st Century. We have GPS and electronics and stuff. Just push the button to turn the darn thing on and rock 'n roll. Iron sights are like stick shifts. What good are they?
