 FOR YOUR Enlightenment

"This existence of ours is as transient as autumn cloud.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movement of a dance.

 A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
   rushing by, like a torrent down a steep  mountain."
                - Tibetan Book of Living and Dying P25, - Sogya

"Live as thoug
h heaven is on earth.
                - Father Alfred D'Souza

 There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

             - Kenneth Grahame


Man overboard Procedure

 The Williamson turn is a manoeuvre used to bring a ship or boat under power back to a point it previously passed through, often for the purpose of recovering a man overboard.

The Williamson turn is most appropriate at night or in reduced visibility, or if the point can be allowed to go (or already has gone) out of sight, but is still relatively near.

1.      If in response to a man overboard, put the rudder toward the person (e.g., if the person fell over the starboard side, put the rudder over starboard

2.      After deviating from the original course by about 60 degrees, shift the rudder full to the opposite

3.      When heading about 20 degrees short of the reciprocal, put the rudder amidships so that vessel will turn onto the reciprocal

4.      Bring the vessel upwind of the person, stop the vessel in the water with the person alongside, well forward of the propellers

If dealing with a man overboard, always bring the vessel upwind of the person. Stop the vessel in the water with the person well forward of the propellers.


The Most Dangerous thing on your boat - Rob Murray

"Ok, maybe not the most dangerous,
but certainly the most likely to draw
blood is the trimmed zip tie, cable tie
or zap-strap. Since one of our definitions
of success is ‘no blood on the deck’,
eliminating these tiny irritating cuts
has been a long term goal." Quote
