While I agree in principle...the trick is when you don't know enough to know...selection of instructors is a wild guess.
Get on a boat at a hands on school then rather than a random stranger. Plus, need to experience a boat in use. I'll stick with the charter suggestion or rental and, yes, they are expensive. But finding out boating isn't for you after buying is more so.
