Agreed, it was very well done, indeed...

Pay no mind to people like Miles & Beryl Smeeton turning over in their graves, if they knew this is where we've come to...

(grin, bigtime)

Seriously, excellent article, you should do more...

Re: Smacky is a published author

Holy smokes, I just read that article last night, and was especially juiced that it mentioned Doug Sabbag's thread here (I assume that's what you were referring to Smack!). No idea that was you behind that article. Now, if you had written it for the old Latitudes and Attitudes, no doubt that the real "Smackdaddy" would have shined through a bit more. Regardless, well done sir.

Re: Smacky is a published author

Thanks fellas. Poor Smeetons. When "Smackdaddy" becomes "an authority on Safety at Sea" - it is clearly a sign of the Armageddon.

The training sessions ought to be lively!

As for Lats and Atts, stern - have you ever seen AMVER ships' crew in bikinis? [shudder]

(PS - Yes, it was Doug's account here that got me interested in the state of AMVER rescue. It's a pretty complicated issue, obviously. But, before looking anywhere else, there is lots of room for us sailors to take up our own end of the responsibilities through awareness, education, and training. That was my focus.)
