No, I'm not going to start another argument over the MOB/COB political correctness nonsense.

I found this site recently while doing a little research on MOB lights, poles, etc.

It's long and a few years old, but the simple fact is: it's still relevant, so get your coffee or beverage of choice, and settle in for a lot of good information!

Gary-

That's an excellent report, and has a lot of good information in it. Also, John Rousmaniere is a member here on sailnet, and participates from time to time.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We participated in a Safety at Sea seminar for Junior Sailors sponsored by the Storm Trysail Club at Larchmont. It was a real eye-opener. We've also run MOB drills at our club, and are scheduling another set this season. Taking a plan you think should work and actually putting it into effect is a great way to find out what needs re-thinking.

We just put a life sling on the boat yesterday, but the water was too cold to have someone jump in for a drill. We'll try it soon.
