New Mexico Boating Education Resource Manual.
Marshall, Margaret, Comp.; Herrera, Orlando, Comp.
Resources for individuals and organizations interested in teaching and promoting boating safety are listed in this directory of films, speakers, publications, and boating courses. Although some information is specific to New Mexico, most is of general interest. An annotated list of 40 films provides sources for obtaining the films, all free of charge on a loan basis. Topics include navigation, boating regulations, accident prevention, emergency procedures, and boating hazards. Emphasis is on outboard boating but white water running and sailing are also covered. An annotated list of 26 books and pamphlets includes information for ordering; most pamphlets are free in quantity. In addition to topics covered in the films, the publications contain information on canoeing, rowing, emergency repair afloat, first aid, and marine communications. The directory provides names, addresses, and phones of 18 people available to speak to school and community groups interested in boating. A final section describes 13 boating safety skills courses offered by the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the American Red Cross. The courses are appropriate for community education programs and range from in-depth study for serious boatmen to short courses designed to get the novice off to a good start. (JH)
