Areas to stay clear of

* Traveler when jibing.
* Sheet winches most of the time.
* If they are on the tramp/foredeck, duck when tacking.
* If I yell I'm not mad - it is simply hard to hear when the engine on or the wind is up.
* Please tell me if I am close to a piling when docking, but don't expect me to answer. I am listening to you and adjusting.

And a lot of things others mentioned.

We don't talk about heeling; we don't heel.
We don't talk about going down below; it isn't.
