Lemme ask you something, fry... Have you been using [R] to make your boat jump? Well? Have you? ...Of course, going out to sea just to jump around would be real dumb, if you ask me. Anyway, what you can do is tilt <-O-> to move your tiller just as you land... That's how you make a sharp turn. If you didn't know that, what don't you try it out?

Boating Course

That's a place where you sail for Rupees. Make money for more Tingle Tuner fun!

The island is comprised of two tiny islands on the Great Sea. One island has a Secret Cave with the Submarine Chart; the other is home to Loot the sailor, who runs the Yacht Game in the waters surrounding the islands. It is located south of the Forest Haven.

For a fee of thirty Rupees, Link can use his boat to race against time and collect as many Rupees as he can. The course consists of two types of floating barrels: barrels that float horizontally and those that float vertically. Link's boat can ride over the horizontally floating barrels, but has to jump over the vertically floating ones. Large amounts of money can be accumulated here, but the time limit will be reduced by 10 seconds each time the game is played, up until it has been brought down to two minutes.
