Re: Tips on Watch Standing
A couple of suggested additions / changes
I want a horizon scan evry 10 minutes
If changing course, I want 360 visual and radar scan.
I want to know about any vessel in sight.
I want the barometer reading and trend recorded every watch change.
Inform me of darkening skies to windward.
Hatches and ports are closed prior to leaving the dock and never opened. The companionway hatch is kept closed.
