Re: Tips on Watch Standing

I don't have enough miles under the keel to presume to make changes to what you've prepared, other than a thought at to format. You could make a great deal of your SOP into a checklist...using a new one for each watch. Going beyond that, with items that aren't logged, you could have a 'fill in the blank' and an acceptable range, i.e. RPMs...
These would help engage the brain. After people have read anything multiple times, they tend to just scan and gloss over them.
