Re: Tips on Watch Standing
...Today I worked on several diagrams which I will use in these sections. They are attached below.
With regard to your diagrams, I don't understand keeping your ditch-bag below and away from the life-raft. In the even of catastrophic flooding and or a fire, having to go below to grab the ditch-bag may be difficult or impossible. I'd want it (keep ours) right next to the life-raft for immediate deployment. Non?
