At all times means just that. Farting with a chartplotter, staring at a sail's trim etc - not a proper watch at all times.
So, it is you or your wife that seats in the bow of the boat with binoculars in one hand scanning endlessly the horizon while the other sails the boat?

Or you just don't go strictly by the rules as all of us?
