Re: VHF Protocol

You know,
If I was in a mayday situation and I am having difficulty trying to clarify the name of my boat to the person who is supposed to be helping me, and I have yet to clarify my boats size, discription, colour, position, helpful landmarks, number of people on board, estimated time afloat, available safety gear, etc.
I hope I would also have the presents of mind to ask if I could speak to somebody who understands *#!%@^! english a little better.
We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
