I feel like much of your post was in response to my question regarding NH's unique laws. My intent was not to place blame on the out of state boaters and I may have slightly mis-worded my post.

My question was more due to the fact that I know captains who are NH residents and have taken a boat safety course (online) from another state in order to specifically avoid the requirement of sitting in the 8hr boat safety class offered by NH.

When I attended the NH boating safety course it had quite a bit of emphasis on the NH-specific boating laws. The courses from other states do not. So, in an effort to become legal to boat in NH, I wonder how many captains take the easy route only to make all the mistakes once on the water in NH.
