How do learn to steer a boat?
Engage forward (or reverse if you need to back out of a slip) by pushing the throttle handle forward (or pulling it back) gently until you feel it shift into gear. When the boat begins moving, spin the wheel just as you would turn the steering wheel in a car to determine direction of travel.
What do you call a person who drives a boat?
If you’re the boat owner and are driving the boat, it would be appropriate to be called captain, but other common names include skipper, pilot, sea captain, commander, or helmsman. Helmsman, while not as well known as some of the others, is the technically correct term for someone driving the boat who is not the owner.
