Smack: practice climbing a cargo net might be part of the training you are working on.
Great feedback. Thanks don.

I'm in contact with a few of the USCG guys in charge of AMVER, a couple of master mariner captains, as well as the people working on the new ISAF regs edition - and am getting some great info.

Keep it coming!
