I am thinking to finally give in and accept the fact that you can't sail or drive a motorboat here unless you have a license. Despite the fact that I *think* I know how drive a boat seeing as I come from the Ocean State, I've decided if I want to live here I must follow ze rules. Has anyone taken this test? There seems to be two types of licenses SBF Binnen (lakes and rivers) and See/Küstenschein (open seas). Any comments on the differences, advantages/disadvantages? Can it be taken in English? Searches on TT only come up with whether you need a license to canoe or use a rubber raft. I am interested in motorboats although sailing is nice, I prefer the former over the latter.
