Re: Tips on Watch Standing
Very nice. I've created my own version for my boat as the detailed instructions will vary per the equipment on the boat. On mine I've added checking the LifeTag MOB modules and their blinking light before going on deck and looking at the Sirius satellite weather instead of the barometer.
Passagemaking on my boat is rather minor. On the Great Lakes the passages are usually less than 48 hours.
One thing that I think is helpful to add for novice crew is protection of night vision. Everyone reads their Ipads and other things, then cannot see squat at night.
