DVD that could be better

"This is basically just a dubbing of a VHS tape onto a DVD. There's only a rudimentary set of chapters encompassing dozens of tips together. The instructions offered, however, are worthwhile. It does a pretty good job of showing you some important steps in handling your boat. You just have to ignore the horrible video quality.
If they'd re-shoot this using the same script and put a decent DVD menu on it they'd have a real winner.
If you can buy it used somewhere cheap it's worth picking up, but new? No."
Not great / not quite what I was expecting

"Another reviewer mentioned the low quality footage of this DVD. That doesn't bother me too much - the picture is clear enough to get the point across.
This DVD did have a few useful tips - I did learn a few things. But only about 7 or 8 of the "60 Tips" were relevant to me. There was no advice here regarding water skiing or fishing safety.
And, there really weren't 60 tips (i.e., Tip #1 is Be Careful, Tip #2 is Different Sized Boats Behave Differently).
Also, about 1/3 of the tips were about dual engine boats, which didn't apply to me. And, another 1/3 of the tips deal with leaving the dock/slip. I don't have a dual engine boat, or a slip, so none of this was useful to me.
But if you are fairly new to boating, have a dual engine or larger boat, and experience a lot of traffic in the marina, there would be a lot of useful information here for you."
