On August 14, 2020 the Gulf Lifestock 1 departed from New Zealand heading for China. The livestock ship encountered heavy seas due to Typhoon Maysak. A distress signal was sent at 1:20am in the morning on September 2, 2020, as the ship had been taking on water and soon sunk forcing the men into life rafts.
Two survivors were found and a deceased shipmate sadly was recovered. We believe there is hope of rescue of the forty remaining survivors. But we need your help!

Develop Your Rescue Character

RISK WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW

When you write your mind is thinking

When you are thinking you are learning

When you learn you can define what you are doing

When you do what you learned you become what it is you are practicing

This is how you develop your character, you study, you write, you practice

You take the risks of training to acquire the benefits of the knowledge

Then you have gained power that defines who you are and brings purpose to your actions

Stand up for your reputation. Practice how to learn.

Faithfully yours,

Shawn

RELATIONSHIP OF RETENTION

STRUCTURE YOUR SAFETY

Do not pander to your training to do just enough to get by, you need to challenge that which you are learning. You need to research and think how to be practical in operations and safety.

In your training you need to know what you are doing and why you are doing it. In K38 courses we request that our students to be able to ‘define their behaviors and actions’. They need to take control and not poorly imitate us, that would be disastrous.

In your training notebooks write down facts. Base them on evidence. Research the differences. Risk what you need to know not what you poorly imitate; those are very low stakes you should never gamble on.

The harsh realities of risk assessment, risk management and risk mitigation require, if not demand of your character to represent accordingly. This is not at 27% retention value or even 50%. You need to set a firm goal of 100% and consistent safety.

Anything less will become a mishap. That may affect others beyond your own control such as the department, your teammates and survivors.

You are developing your risk awareness more when you train with purpose. Don’t go through the motions and check that checklist box. Study and evaluate fearlessly. Most important have a conversation about it before, during and afterwards, seek out other credible professionals who will tell you the truth you need to hear.

Education is how you formulate your thoughts, then you need to write them down. You can apply this to your life personally or professionally. It should be part of your way of moving yourself and your capability forward.

This is how you support your team.

CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY

Otherwise you have no argument to the knowledge you are learning. You are only a reader, a voyeur of someone else’s experience. Being a reader means you have low retention value.

When you go through the motions of an in-person training, you pass your class, but later you fail in the field because you have no control over what you learned. You did nothing to retain that which passed by you in a blur.

You pick up the highlights you attached yourself to but your 27% may have missed the 4% of meaning and the rest of the % if your upcoming disaster. You prevent it. You have full control of this.

Someday you will be investigated on your knowledge. Your success and failure lie in how you think. You need to figure this out and without arrogance you need to determine how you are going to do this. Nobody can enable it for you.

It starts with getting your pen out, or your laptop computer. You cannot do this on a cell phone, that sets you up improperly and permits failure.

You have to know your equipment. What does ‘knowing your equipment’ mean?

You practice hands on and book knowledge. You empower seamanship and watermanship boating skills. You get into your Rescue Water Craft and start learning how it works and how you maintain it.

This is the example of the broken system of training we observe by poor performance we witness in videos. These people think they are doing great. It’s a lie, they are marginal. They are heading for an accident and cannot see it coming. They are unable to interpret the risk mitigation, management and assessment.

K38 does not teach like this, we negotiate your future with you. It is determined by your decisions and willingness to engage knowledge. You determine your risk and your responsibility.

Our instructors do not reject your sacred obligation to stand up for your reputation and your skills. We know that is your role. We are your professional guides, challenging your bad behaviors, mindset and hands-on skills.

Remember this: no person should be congratulated for an accident, or rewarded with a medal or citation afterwards, that is corruption at its finest level of excuse.

Faithfully yours,

Shawn

Know Thy Self

Don’t be seduced by the work enthusiasm itself

Be prepared for tragedy. That being to avoid your own.

At some point in your career you will be facing this and you need to be prepared. If you are not ready a true Hell will manifest in a personal catastrophe, so don’t let it bring you down and those around you.

Just like training for the mission, you need to train for tragedy and the hurts that lurk in our thoughts hidden secretly in our brain. We wrestle with the moral visuals of horrific events, these brittle fragments of the miracles or unspeakable experiences.

To be careful with leading a meaningful professional life and your range of work you must not be naïve about the reality of the natural and human tragedy of work that is associated with your discipline.

You have to defend yourself with internal mechanisms of spiritual and emotional survival.

You will be exposed to tragedy, to a structural trauma, yours and theirs. Yours may not be physical.

You will witness things that bad people do. You may visit it within your own thoughts.

You cannot be naïve about these truths.

You have to know what evil is, and the complexity of tragedy, loss, grief and disaster. This is not an unknown, it is a fact. You will be facing it, and visiting it in your dreams.

Face it, forage for the truth and the harm, know its shadow and yours. Otherwise you will not be prepared for the job, the reality of nature and the dark aspects of human behavior.

You will not be a good fit for the job, you may become a problem because you did not prepare. This is where people end up becoming victims of their work. This work can devour those not prepared, and it may nip at you from time to time.

The first discussion to have with yourself is can you handle this? Are you the right person for the endurance of this pathway? What is your counter measure to combat this inner war? You need to negotiate this now, not when you find yourself in an unexpected funk.

Water Rescue is not a happy plush toy. It is not being a hero; it is not the high we get off of helping others. Its grimy, drastic, deadly and dangerous. It’s more like wrestling with the precipice between life and death and you are an assessor. We arrive at those incidents with intention to intervene on a selection process of actions.

That does not make any of us a self-appointed God, a hero, or a savior. It is a choice that you made a bargain with. Its hard work, its effort, it’s a dervish between right and wrong, accident and preparation, prey and predator.

For water safety measures, this can be a volunteer, or paid professional. Both require training for the calls.

Although, most of the world’s water rescues are conducted by the general population in the moment of, or during a catastrophic event, and they do pretty good.

They may not be exposed to repeated attempts of intercession. The numbers of instance may not correlate to long term exposure of trauma. You may want to bargain now how you take a break to recharge the spirit and the flesh.

Running on a high tempo of an adrenaline flush, also has a hormonal depletion.

You have to know about balances, checks and rebate checks. Because sometimes the coupon is not enough to redeem.

And you need to increase the flesh association with nutrition, that feeds the brain.

There is emotional stimulus you can explore outside of present experience, start practicing your critical thinking and observation.

Every tragic encounter you have to reset from the chaos witnessed. There is a cost for every action, and you exhaust bits and pieces, just like burning fuel. Make sure you don't run out of fuel stranded on a dead end street.

You have to add more tools from the past tragic experience so you can constantly move forward and away from inner chaos.

The Predator in Our Mind

It makes you a person who ‘attempts’ to intervene and place yourself, your equipment and possibly your team in peril. If you have not faced any of these, you need to do this, or you will be naïve in the moment of tragedy. Then your naivete will cost you greatly.

You may have deep depression, or PTSD. The only way to grasp reality is to wrestle with its truths. If you are naïve you will be your own victim of circumstance. If you are at that point not willing to take a look back at yourself, you will blame outwardly as a victim.

Life is not fair and we have a duty to be prepared for pathological victimization. People do not think through very well what reality is. The heartbreak, the suffering witnessed. These are characteristics of life that cannot be taken personally.

There are accidents, they have causes. Weather is its own pattern of life. Earth is alive below us and we live on a broken crust. The atmosphere is a bubble of pressures and astral influences. Humans are for the most part good and bad. The deciding difference is which side they make peace with and which side they ignore.

A good mentor who has walked ahead of you is a good anchor for support. You want to look towards the durable, strong, and enduring icons and legends. What is it about their personality? How further can your learning objectives go to support your own mental and spiritual safety? Do you have a relationship with a God of your choice that guides you away from ownership of not having any hope in life?

A lot of people want to be a ‘water rescue’ responder. Wanting something is not doing it. Doing it is tragic.
• Prepare for tragedy.
• Prepare for managing the grief of witness, your own, your team and survivors.
• Prepare by understanding the 5 levels of risk management and focus on the extreme.

Prepare by establishing a spiritual base you can rely upon when times are tough and you question the purpose and meaning of life. (The answer is being purposeful by having meaning and defining it).
• Prepare by understanding that humans are evil (Malevolent).
• Prepare by understanding of the measures of power influenced by weather, Earth and atmospheric events.
• Prepare by understanding your equipment and PPE, how to use it properly, inspect and when to retire.

Depression has facets some of it is an effect of emotional kill joy from bitter, jealous, petty colleagues.
The negative human interface can be a catalyst that pushes another problem forward. ‘Pushing buttons’ is an effective measure to get to your vulnerable areas of your person and cause you to blow or go.

If you get down low spiritually and emotionally or even physically; you have to keep moving. If you find that you are down and you hold yourself down with reinforced negative thoughts, you will have a harder time getting back up.

Exercise, thinking, moving, activity and nutrition that builds you up with proper rest is key, but don’t shirk from life. Face it with courage. Be brave and remember who you are.

The time to prepare for tragedy is now, train your mind. Start by addressing the evil and disaster potential that has a pattern throughout all of Earth and human history. When you gather perspective, it is easier to face and restrict buying into any false fairy tales. The facts and nothing but the facts!

Tragedy is characteristic of life. History proves to us the evidence of its measure.

Life does go on, with or without us. When disruptive negative events happen, life keeps shifting to the next reference. A good reference is when you have a negative and bitter thought, immediately chase it with a corresponding positive one. Train your mind how you train your body. Strengthen your inner determination.

Make sure you have a plan, and not just for doing they job, getting a paycheck and planning a vacation.

This is a vital part of how we organize our spirit in the value structure of loss vs. gain. Our real mission is to come home safe; and to do that, we plan.

The highest value is to plan for our spirit as well, it’s what drives us! And without that, we are just another statistic.

Faithfully yours,

Shawn

WHAT MAKES A GOOD COXSWAIN?

A highly trained one. Why?

A complex question cannot take one minute or one sentence structure to placate the format of thought that would not entertain a necessary discussion. The discussion must be productive.

It requires a CON-versation. If people are satisfied with a quick answer, they are the problem. They encourage mishaps. They most likely defend them. These are called excuses.

What is worthy discussion is the proper formulation to a rule, getting to the ‘devil in the details'. It is called conscious. That is our active and aware internal warning system that alerts us what we should not do.

This is a warning, its internal and its sacred. This is what keeps people alive under pressures unknown.

Precisely the determination in a moment facing death, mortality, not existing, can be held within a fraction of a second decision.

What was it in me that caused me to ride head on into a mountain of a moving wall of ocean water, instead of turning and running in panic? And not one wave, but a train of waves out to sea on a very small power boat, which makes no sense.
I made a decision based off of a bevy of input that was manifest inside me through hard work, attending to the details and listening to God. That internal guide of life, the miracles we cannot explain.

There is an answer to this. It’s not the one people want to hear.

What does highly trained offer to the profound listener? They know what is coming. They can anticipate the situation unfolding in front of them and they understand what their positioning should be in advance.

This is become they do not lack the know-how. It is understood that those who cannot handle effectively the risks, known or unknown are behind the curve of anticipation. They are delayed, waiting for something to happen to face it and apply facts. Underway you have to be 3 steps ahead, not 6 steps behind. This is not complex reasoning, its common sense.

The potential of what we are hunting is to secure a future experience of a conscious goal we want to attain. If that goal is haphazard, a poor imitation or an apprehension of reality, the selection will actualize in a terrible result. This is a strong possibility.

If the actual experience is not realized as a successful mission, the preparation was wrong. This must be attended to; it is called remedial action. The problem is this type of person is already dangerous.

They have no platform of realistic measures versus a potential never realized. This is the trap. They put the past forward of the future and reward mishaps, don’t accept or realize the poor choices.

There is an ethical argument regarding these kinds of choices, these poor performers, these haphazard programs. The safety of the program is held hostage in the actions of the program. If they don’t exist, it will be easy to see in truth.

We’ve attained enough historical evidence to see this as a pandemic of neglect instead of an encounter of Watermanship behaviors.

THE VALUE OF EDUCATION IS CONVINCING

The problem is the handlers of the boat or the program are not good. Our goal is to create that which is good, that means we are accountable.

The pressures, risks and demands are not on the boat. Those who earned it by vetting, are. They don’t operate under a lie. It requires effort, dedication and study. Study in the books, and study on the water; study of the craft.

They are not learning it be trying to recreate it. Mishaps are not glorified as capability, but admonished as failure.

They don’t think that free is full steam ahead. They invest in their behavioral learning.

Knowing that the process of acquisition of knowledge is the way.

What does ALL OF THIS MEAN?

Our training decisions have to be right.

Or our field decisions will be wrong.

When people want a free, fast, short answer, it’s precisely the time to get away from them. Don’t let them on your boat and do not go on the water with them. Stop the harm.

Encourage them to get properly trained and engage in the boating education process. Nobody can help a broken ego fix itself, but you can protect your own by ethical choices.

Start thinking and performing on a level that your operational choices can transform Watermanship as an actual function and represent our community instead of harming it.

Instead of being tempted to make horrific mistakes, understand that you control the helm.

The boat does not hit the rock, capsize or lose control.

And here we have the truth of our choices, what we select is our responsibility. It is not potential; it is what we did right from the start.

Faithfully yours,

Shawn

GET INTO THE CONVERSATION

WARES = Water Rescue Education

WARES is an ethical and altruistic movement to evolve water rescue worldwide.

WARES is a collaboration of fact-based evidence shared in the spirit of cooperation.

Sourced by those who are doing the job. This is not a strategy to train but to share crowd sourced educational and operational evidence from those who are on the water, on the boat, the survivors, and the stories of those who perished.

What went wrong, marginal or succeeded during incidents?
What Personal Protective Equipment has proven its merit? What needs to be adjusted or adopted?

WARES is the virtual proof from the results of a variety of responses from mutual aid public safety agency professionals to the volunteer or professional guide.

Every incident offers insight, wisdom and takebacks.

Many are manifest in the absolutes learned of accidents and injuries. What equipment was broke or damaged, how did it happen, was it preventable?

The results of poor behaviors and selection in the field or the quick and vetted maneuvers that proved worthy, we need to not lose these lessons, but pay close attention.

STAY STEADY

It is a contextual sourcing of global supporters who are ready to move ahead. Those stalwarts who believe in the ethos and risks entrusted to those who work the frontlines at the edge of a continent, the shore, aerial deliveries, the boat, the swimmer stroke.

We have CONversations which result in solutions, not repeated mishaps. We are not looking to reward the accident and excuse the lesson.

From those whom are at the helm. Join the movement, join the CONversation.
Hashtag #WARESed

WATERRESCUECON
A curated convention sourced around water rescue conversations brought to you by the minds and creators of rescue water craft safety and water rescue disciplines of a variety of educational outlets. This is our cultural world fairground for our future, our public need and for preservation of life, including our own.

WaterRescueCon is programmed for you to be a participant, it is like not like past, it is a stand-alone modern experience. Hashtag #WaterRescueCON

Weather The Storm

SAFETY MEANS DANGER

Ahoy friends!

K38 is docked and riding out the storm in safe harbors all over the world. From Asia, South and North America, Australia, Europe and Africa, our pandemic quarantine is a gift to the health of humanity.

Our community was built for storms; dark nights, cold, wind and extreme hardship. We understand the loss of disaster.

We have had our hands and hearts upon it; our eyes witness devastation, been on the water and listened, heard the heartbreak with our ears, and worked with survivors and those who perished. But most importantly, our spirit and actions gifted to be a positive conduit of hope in bad situations.

We are ready for the difficulty of any struggle that nature and mankind delivers, as long as our health is intact.

This is who we are, this is our K38 family, our instructors, volunteers and qualified coxswains. These incredibly Unique personalities who can manage tragedy and not succumb to its disaster.

We are caretakers of the greater good on the wild and watery main.

Our community is a resilient one. We don’t feel sorry for ourselves, or reduce our potential because times get hard.

What we do is get stronger, gain spiritual awareness and become more determined and focused.

What do you want your finest moment to be? Will you be the person on the boat everyone can depend upon, even if harboring on shore? We believe you are that person.

Be brave. Have Courage. Take on the challenge the same way you head into the darkening storm; head down, eyes focused on the goal and a safe return to ready for the next call.

You are what is best in any human. We are essential beings who express spirit, determination and honor through service and sacrifice.

STAY STEADY

What we are not is weak. We are not cowards. We take the hard hits that everyone else is suffering with. We are a beacon of endurance. We never quit. We pray for everyone's well being and safety.

Our community has faced many challenges over the years. Wars devastate humanity and nations. It has been a long time we have not had to face such adversity. It is our turn. We can look to our ancestors and let them remind us of the things we need to do to stay steady. All generations overcome war, what we do is pay attention; quarantine.

This is the first of this type of war against our health and economy. We will not fold, cower or excuse. We will be ready to go to work, put our lives on the line like others depend upon whenever called.
Honor those who have died from this virus by being the best person you can be for what they will no longer experience. Rise up your capability and gratitude.

Meanwhile, what can we do besides support our local communities and families? Train!

We can study, prepare our equipment, assess the level of our capability and program needs. Make necessary changes and increase our capability. We can get back into our books and source material.

While we may not be on the water, we have been gifted a tremendous opportunity to reflect on our character, behaviors and attitude. Now is the time to review and correct.
Thank you to all the frontline defenders;

COXSWAIN BEHAVIOR

SAFETY IS A BEHAVIOR CAMPAIGN

Program review is the cornerstone strength of you team and mission.

The waterway on a inclement weather call can be not only hazardous for small craft but can rapidly decrease performance values that were not intially targeted in training.

Today is a great day to review any and all values to the mission and how they correlate with the program management.

If you have any questions, give us a shout!

K38 Rescue Water Craft

The Encouragement Effect

The effect of training criticism is to encourage behavior development in Rescue Water Craft boat handling skills.

It is a measure to motivate a student candidate towards the purpose of their goals for qualification.

The quality of criticism is equivalent to the motivation and meaning of the outcomes desired.

Training scrutiny is a process of observation, review and remedial correction.

Failure of skills is a strong part of the construct of criticism.

BE FEARLESS OF YOUR REVIEWS

It is also a study of the art modus of training and relationship between the audits that instructors oversee. This relationship requires attention and preparation.

The content of the assessment is based off the vessel type, water conditions training in, accessory equipment and the aim to be a prudent and safe occupational boater.

Targets that are to be achieved are focused on the fundamental best practices employed during the training that are reinforced throughout the entire training program.

It is about respecting the student goals enough to inspire, coach, motivate and direct them to the behaviors that will fulfill their mariner skills.

NOTHING BUT THE CHANGE

Change is a varied experience that students embrace on different levels and measures. This is dependent upon emotional maturity and physical capability.

Being comfortable in the water we train in and attentiveness to the responsibility and determination of the goals we aim to achieve is respect for the risk and the management of those inherent risks that will be faced in the field post training.

Students should come prepared to training. They should conduct homework on boating skills, rules, laws and navigation prior to attendance. They should be willing to undertake the learning process of correction actions based on their boating skill exercises.

Instructors will observe and issue suggestions, corrections and advice. The students can also ask questions, in fact ask a lot of questions! Be sure you are receiving the value of your instruction and that your comprehension is not assumed but based on facts.

GET YOUR MIRROR OUT

Remember, no matter what your water rescue discipline, your instructor(s) is not looking for fault, they are allowing you to explore the behaviors that are not inherently familiar to you initially.

They are there to encourage dialogue, practice, understanding and comprehension.

Your future role is a significant burden on your performance. You will soon be taking over your risk management and risk mitigation. These behaviors that you are coached in will guide you to the reality of that responsibility.

Pay attention, training is your mistake field, you want to do you best to not pick up the pace during a real incident. Nail it now! Pay attention, ask effective questions and be hard on your learning ability.

Start self-assessing and critiquing your own skill behavior. When you take ownership of your own learning you will develop on a much faster pace. Give yourself permission to learn form your failures and be encouraged by your critiques!

The rest is up to you!
