Due to our lack of boating experience, we were a little nervous about this adventure. The boat rental folks told us that if we could drive a car, we could drive this boat. We essentially proved this to be true. There was only one time when we had to employ the "everyone get on that side of the boat and push us away from that wall" technique and that was in the midst of a three point turn to prepare for docking at the coffee shop. There were several low bridges that required the crew to duck down, but we never scraped the awning. And we did make one wrong turn that sent us to a less scenic section of Leiden, but now we can say we've seen the Heineken Brewery, the cement plant and the Volvo Car Dealership.
