Do you drive a boat?

You can navigate the stern of your bost into a slip while fighting wind and current
You can control direction of your bow while leaving the slip into wind and current
You can head your craft through wind and current into a new direction from the slip so as to travel correctly down the channel

But... when you need to take your boat into open water consider the following: A pilot is a mariner who guides ships through dangerous or congested waters, such as harbors or river mouths. However, the pilot is only an advisor, as the Master remains in legal, overriding command of the vessel at all times.

Therefore, I / we are Masters of our boats, as we rule the Captains Seat! And, that's not the only thoughtful Master role I fully enjoy and get deeply into! - LOL!!

PS: I love to "drive" my 1967 Buick Wildcat!

Run is the operative word. My boat keeps me running to the marine supply on a regular basis.
