Training for the OUPV and Master License is difficult at best. Those of you taking these classes or preparing for the examinations will agree I'm sure that Chart Plotting and especially memorization of the USCG Rules of the Road can be a monumental undertaking. GPS is center stage when it comes to modern navigation using a chart; but the stringent, enforced requirement to obtain the license is for you to display proficiency utilizing a Mercator paper chart with plotting tools such as parallel rulers, dividers, compass and calculator. Value added to mastering the requirements of this form of navigation, the skill set does greatly improve understanding and proper interpretation of GPS methods of the science.
Navigation Rules of the Road, not only one of the highest scores (90%) to pass the exam, it is crucial to learn these regulations with the same importance as roadway rules for your vehicle. You're liable for your actions when operating your boat, and there is neither excuse nor exoneration, for mistakes using the waterway rules designed specifically to prevent collisions between vessels. There are some very effective methods to accomplish this task of learning with outstanding results.
