Many people never look behind them to see the problems they may be causing for others. (That is true in cars too )
Another well stated challenge for all boaters.

I dont know about the masses, but for me I am on contestant 360 degree lookout, and by the end of a day of boating l am worn out!

I get the impression there are a lot of captains who only see straight ahead and the rest of the world is someone else problem,,, Certainly not all, but too many.
