Seamanship is the art and science of operating a boat. Seamanship encompasses navigation, radio communications, boat handling, watch-standing, anchoring, docking, engine and equipment maintenance, towing, weather forecasting, search-and-rescue techniques, and more. These skills are attained over time, but there are many books, videos, and courses available to acquaint you fully with the wide range of subjects.
