I can't agree more!! When I was taking the license course way back with it was actually in a class room, there was a sea captain that operated out Seabrook (if I remember correctly). The MP teaching had us go outside an walk 150' from the steps in front of the school we were at. He had measured before the class. The Sea Captain was 30ft at best, not exaggerating!!! He then argued that where he was doesn't need to obey the 150' rule because it was salt water/river inlet. The MP asked for his boat name and then said "well I'll make sure I let my friends know and they can pull you over and you can tell them that too and then they will give you your ticket".
