I would like to have a copy of this, too.

As a 20-year Naval Aviation vet, I can say checklists are mandatory! Of course you should know Emergency Procedures cold, and be well practiced in them, but even in aviation emergencies, your procedures come from knowing the checklist! Your checklists should cover every conceivable mishap and should be readily available to all hands. On a boat with a crew, one crew member should be designated to handle the emergency checklist and read the steps in order, checking them off as completed.

It can eliminate a great deal of confusion and save you and your craft.

IMHO...

"E" Lists

One of the good things about setting up checklists are that you can add/modify scenarios and actions as you need to. Fresh Water and Salt, Daylight or Dark, Sail or Power - some will be the same and some will be different and all can be changed. At the least you have an idea where to start until your list is complete. As you make up your list and PRACTICE what your reactions will be, you can modify and note the things that don't work as smooth as they should. Take ALL the lists you can find, catagorize them, add them together and then you have a good starting point to fit your boat.

Hi,

I'm new here and relatively new to sailing offshore.

I find that list a great idea, as my next trip to the balearic islands will have 3 newbies on board. So the check list is a good thing for the briefing and emergencies.

Does anyone have a list that I could start with? (I would have to adjust it, as I charter boats each holiday, but basic principles apply)

Cheers

The fact that there would be a debate about emergency lists surprise me. Having worked in the nuclear business for nearly 20 years I can testify to their necessity. We have flow charts for just about every scenario that can be imagined. The first thing I did after buying my boat was to develop emergency procedure both written and in flow charts. They are invaluable.

Please feel free to post them. I thought that was the idea of this thread.
