So I think the correct title of this tread should be.

Making way today. And not underway.

For those purists among you.

I am kind of hoping, for Daddyo's sake, that the most accurate topic title today is "Kicking back drinking cold beer today."

I don't know. It was just that the USCG exam refered to a boat under way but not making way.

Underway can be defined as any time a boat is in the water and not anchored or aground. making way means that the boat is moving through the water.

If Underway is in the water, not anchored or aground, then the boat is moving. What else would it be doing? Whether by its own power or by the power of current. Therefore, he is Underway! It may not be in the direction he desires, but he is making way/underway.

Now, back to the subject at hand. Keep boating DaddyO!

Boat being propelled...underway making way...
Boat drifting with the current...underway not making way

Sorry Daddyo.
I didn't mean to hijack the tread.
I've got my brain all wrapped around this Captains test thing.
Just you keep water moving under the keel.
Safe passage.

Yes indeed. I just can't believe I have a potted plant aboard now. I must be getting soft. All this ICW stuff will do it to you I guess.

Maybe you will meet some other boaters, you could trade them the dirt for another anchor, or maybe another engine.

A few pics from the Miami Ft Lauderdale area. Anchored in No Name Harbor in Key Biscayne. Arrived just after sunset. Dinner on a friends sailboat all is good. The underwater LED lights I put on are great for nightime dingy boarding. 10:00pm and its 72 degrees.
