Re: Tips on Watch Standing
Also, I believe the long-standing customary waking for someone who overslept their turn at the watch is a bucket of cold seawater.
I had one crewmember that could not make watch on time. I asked the watchstander before her to wake her earlier until she made it. We got to 45 minutes before watch and she still was habitually 5 to 10 minutes late.
The two pots of coffee she spilled on the carpet didn't help my assessment of her.
I put her on a plane in the next port.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
