Newbie needs help

I’m new to Blender and I have to create a dock and water scene. Can anyone give me a good starting point, for a tutorial or reference source? I’ve been playing around with blender but can’t seem to get it to do what I want it to. I’ve looked at some tutorials but they think you already know some how to get around in blender. I’ve seen finished products with what I need so I know it can be done just don’t know where to start. I really don’t want to go back to the difficult program I was using.

Thanks, Carmalita

google “blender: noob to pro”. It takes a very long time to even learn the notorious GUI, so get started there.
