Tom’s Tips About Emergencies

By Tom Neale - Published January 02, 2014 - Viewed 1047 times

1. Give a pre-trip briefing to your passengers before you leave the dock.

2. Even if it's short and very basic, it will probably help should something go wrong.

3. It should instill in them confidence in you and confidence that something can be done to remedy a bad situation.

4. At a minimum, tell them location of life jackets (and how to put them on), location of and how to use fire extinguisher(s), location of flashlights and a few other basics relevant to your boat such as, for example, how to use the VHF, the local USCG appropriate phone number if you are in cell phone range, where the bucket is or how to throw over the anchor.
