I agree wholeheartedly. I took the "Safety Equipment and Survival Procedures" at the North Pacific Fishing Vessel Owners Association last spring for work (research vessel in Arctic); and I highly recommend taking that class or another much like it.

Donning survival suits; righting overturned life rafts, etc. Lots of fun and valuable skills to be had.

When my wife and I sail off into the sunset in a few years I'll take it again, and have her attend as well.
