Operator's manual
by Christopher from Scott City, Kansas on May 18, 2013
The Sport Boat Deckboats Operator's Manual is a great resource for keeping on board any boat, especially for novice operators like myself. It is full of basic operating and safety information that is critical for anyone operating a boat. I am very satisfied with the purchase of it and actually feel more comfortable as a newbie operator having read it. Great buy.

by Larry from Ione, California on February 18, 2012
I was disappointed because the book was just to generic and didnt give me any real information that helped. As soon as I read though the book I tossed it in the trash can.
