The Appendices cover boating into the waters of Canada and Mexico, the effects of weather on the boater's health, and general information on obtaining a US Coast Guard captain's license. The course material includes the text, a knot practice board, and the One Minute Guide to the Nautical Rules of the Road by Charlie Wing.
