I think there are other things he can do to ensure offshore safety. I have read of sailors using pressure washers to make sure there are absolutely no leaks on the boat. Upgrading the rigging is another fundamental step I think. Inspecting, and possibly reinforcing the bulkhead tabbing couldn't hurt either, I found some broken tabbing in my boat from years of coastal cruising and I'm sure in the open ocean improperly secured bulkheads are the first thing to go
