OK. So you hit the lottery, you got a bundle of money, you just tookpossession of that Hatteras 50 and you're dying for warm weather so you can get out on the water.But do you know the difference between a red nun and a green can? Do you know what they mean? Do you knowwhen to give way? Do you know what to do when clouds in the summertime sky start looking like anvils? And can you cleat off a line without losing a couple of fingers?Flotilla 12 of the Coast Guard Auxiliary can teach all that and more in a 13-week safe-boating course that begins Tuesday at the CoastGuard Station in Curtis Bay. For $18 and a few hours of your time onTuesday or Thursday nights, you can learn about boat construction and nomenclature -- port and starboard, for example -- rigging and handling, tying knots and plotting courses.

Coast Guard group tainted by attitude Your Anne Arundel Section article about the Coast Guard Auxiliary ["Ready to jump on board," June 18, 2006] paints it in glowing terms, sadly outweighed by the lead photograph and its caption. It is indeed a shame that the fine educational work and search-and-rescue operations of the Coast Guard Auxiliary are so often overshadowed by the officiousness so clear in that picture. Despite the fact that the auxiliary has no law enforcement function, the auxiliary man presumes to lecture the occupants of the sailboat on the law. And his self-important pronouncement is questionable at best.
