Re: Tips on Watch Standing
A simple button? What about the "audible noisemaking device" or whatever the safety regulations call for anyhow? Sometimes called the HORN?
Or maybe the whistle on your pfd. Except mine is inside the inflatable.
I am just as happy when the crew nudges me awake when there is a ship on the horizon.
BTW - most of my crew use ear plugs as do I. But I will wake up to unusual sounds or motions.
