ARE YOU TRAINABLE?

Not All Knowledge is Equal

"The blind leading the blind" is an idiom and a metaphor in the form of a parallel phrase.

It is used to describe a situation where a person who knows nothing is getting advice and help from another person who knows almost nothing.

It can be traced back to the Upanishads, which were written between 800 BCE and 200 BCE.

This is not just ancient wisdom it is wisdom of the moment.

If someone can be honest with you and tell you that your Rescue Water Craft operations are harmful and wrong. You need to listen and be quiet until they have finished explaining the reasons why.

And if you shut up and listen to them, you can figure out that you are wrong and you won’t be corrected anymore, you will correct yourself.

LISTEN AND LEARN

When you can start asking questions of your actions and utility, you will be trainable. You will succeed.

A person who tells you directly that you are causing harm and can explain it with precision and evidence, you have been given a tremendous gift. Be quiet and listen. Don’t give any excuses!

When you start to think properly and with a safety mindset, you will start to learn about the things you don’t know about. You can exit stupidity and you can become distinctive in thriving functionality! Who wouldn’t want that?

Those who do not care about you want you to fail. Why would you allow them to abuse your potential?

Those who tell you what you need to hear care greatly about you. They are standing up for you.

Listen to them.

KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS

Those who tell you that you are doing well when you are failing, their motive is to cause you from succeeding.

Redeem yourself from their audience, get away from them, you deserve better.

If something doesn’t seem right, question it, don’t stop questioning until you discover the end of the answer, the root and the genesis.

Mistakes are a given, ignorance is a given, there are things that you can do that will allow you to succeed on a level of competence you will be stunned to discover!

Detail the expertise you seek.

You can start with something as simple as one item you use: Inspect your engine cut off switch.

Have you done that yet? Do you know what you are looking for? Do you have an annual inspection requirement and inspection lists you manage? Is this a positive habit of yours or do you neglect it?

If you neglect the simple safety measures, you will not be able to see the accident ahead of you.

If you answered no to all of these or one of these its time to start planning for your future success!
It begins with listening.

ONE IS NONE

Winning is Better than Losing

One is None so get on a winning team! There are always two teams, the winning team and the losing team.

The winning team goes for the long steady haul putting in the hours, the education and paying attention to the win.

The losing team is disorganized, doesn’t respect their equipment and is in it for themselves and not for their team mates.

Every mishap should be critically reviewed by peer experts to prevent harming people. Every training session should be reviewed.

Physics and theory are science and science is based on evidence; they are called ‘facts’. These elements are part of the collaboration of progress, use them in your scrutiny process.

Mishaps are based on a lack of fundamental knowledge or disregard for known standards or disrespect of seamanship skills.

PRUDENT MARINER

Don’t be a statistic like that other guy, become a boating safety expert!

You will need a subject matter expert fielded in the maritime community to achieve this. You need a competent mentor.

This will not happen in lifeguarding, it will not happen in fire rescue, it will not happen in surfing, it will only be achieved from the source: BOATING. You have to become a boater first, everything else lines up second.

Let’s dig into this subject. What is the objective?

Perhaps you would attach your boating responsibility to this: To not cause harm to yourself, others or your equipment.

Mentorship is Security

What can you do? What can they do?

The first place is to seek a boater education.

I emphasize 'BOATER' and not lifesaver. Forget the lifesaving part for now, that's the wrong focus and that is what trips these people up.

Find a competent mentor and listen to them.

Give them recognition for what they taught you as you protect what you learned; that is how you recognize the scale of achievement you attain. It's called respect, and in the boating community that ranks high.

In fact if they are creating repetitive mishaps and have the word 'RESCUE" emblazoned on their PWC they need to remove it ASAP until they become a responsible boater. That may call for some humble pie.

Get your basic boating education in place, make it a priority. Put the time in.

Study maritime law and rules.
Understand SOLAS, understand navigation, start with these basic essentials. From there the rest is easy!

We encourage all egos to stand down 'temporarily' and humble their learning ability. You will need your ego for later when you can manage it in concert with maritime law and navigational skills.

Then they will prove to themselves and those they work with that they are a prudent mariner by embracing seamanship skills.

The old saying goes 'Knowledge is Power', so use it!

K38 Way of Training is the evidence based Right Way. Proven and tested. We did it the right way because we care and listened to our mentors.

SAFETY MATTERS BECAUSE IT STANDS FOR SOMETHING

THEORY EXCUSE FOR EGO

As your online mentor I would ask you to start thinking critically, open your attitude and park your ego. But only for a little while, you are going to need your ego later on the water.

Let's understand how learn defining what is taking place in sequence of operational security.

So, I encourage you to look at physics. What does this mean?

Well its not based on theory its based on scientific evidence!

PRUDENT MARINER

We tend to put up defense when our pitfalls are identified. This is something that comes up in training for us as instructors, how can we not 'offend' someone who doesn't know what constructive criticism is or how much it matters!

Criticism is not negative, in fact its necessity.

Any person who cannot take constructive criticism is the wrong fit for boat operations. Because risk does not give a damn about their emotions.

If they vocalize a string of defensive excuses such as blaming the boat, the dock, the rock or the wave and fail to identify their selective decision in putting their craft in those situations they hold onto dangerous thinking! We cannot accept this, we must take responsibility for our maneuvers.

When operators become defensive and cannot admit their errors, we have to pull them off the boat and get them back in training. This is the best way to help them and to protect their reputation and get them on the right track.

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS NOT BLAME

Constructive criticism is the fast track to success!

If you are defensive and have problem with instruction, guidance and critical peer review, you need to stop it. That is fear talking from a weak position that will harm you.

Don’t be that person. If you are unable to take criticism you are not trainable. That means you are a liability waiting to explode.

These type of people are a boating safety problem, it will be revealed at some point because everyone runs a camera and cameras don’t lie. They are moving backwards, not forward.

As friends in boating safety we don't want to see our colleagues fail. We will not lie to them. We will tell them what they need to know so they can succeed.

If we fail to be honest with those who are struggling or operating dangerously we would not care about them. We are sad when we see our colleagues fail, when crisis strikes we take no joy in their problems. We are all in this boat together, we are one team, but we all need to pull our oar in stride or we won't get anywhere.

Most folks will take any attention they can get without retrospective scrutiny of their motives, especially if its negative. First we need to identify the negative of our operations and challenge it to physics and safety.

Negative attention is more seductive than responsible actions. That is why weakness prevails, its easier to be weak than strong.

Yes, our community has a multitude of chronic abusers; lauding their mishaps as if they should get a medal for surviving repetitive negligence. We see too many of these Zero Heroes. They need to be fixed so they can rise up instead of going backwards.

What we need are competent Coxswains who represent our boating community with honor and seamanship skills. Men and women who respect our maritime heritage and nautical ancestry. We all need to enforce competency to take the stage and put these careless operators in the queue for learning.

How do they get away with it? It’s not because they are great, it’s because a Personal Water Craft is very forgiving! Give our boats their credit due! We have to constantly assess ourselves as well and make sure we are walking the walk honorably in our helm behavior.

Your safety is first. If you have an operator who is reckless, say something. When any person fails to recognize evidence-based facts, don’t get on a boat with them! Protect yourself first and choose wisely who you will board with.

That’s a tough one for publicity seekers, because the general public cannot weigh risk versus gain and drama is the immediate reward.

Critiques and constructive criticism only sting if you recognize yourself as the problem and realize you are not up to par.
It won’t sting at all if you are willing to learn and have a hunger for appropriate knowledge.

In fact, imagine how fast your increase will be!

Most professionals hunger for constructive criticism, its called ‘training’. Reviews are part of the learning process and are taken seriously.

Be very hungry and ask for a review!

What it Means to be a Rescue Water Craft Coxswain

RESPONSIBILITY IS MEANING

One must have the internal dedication and fortitude to apply oneself towards mastery, proper use of vessel care and inspection; maritime law, and seamanship skills.

To use proper care and utility of personal protective equipment, communications and navigation.

To be competent working as an individual or on a team under duress during recoveries of humans and animals with extreme pressure from the elements applied at the moment while on a mission.

To finish the ending with a safe transport and consideration of a stable vessel and survivor care.

To act properly when at the helm or on-board towards the goal of patrol duties and rescue needs.

To be able to determine the scope and risk of operations and changing directions.

PRUDENT MARINER

To be able to alter a life-threatening experience by degrees of severity and measured responses.

To decipher the past events in chronological order for inspection, review and critique and remedial correction when required.

To face these moments with courage and the spirit of examination and faith in their practices.

To be truthful in standards of operation and to act up on them while managing the risks for all on-board.

To not cause harm and to come home safe.

To be physical fit and mentally strong.

To be a diligent critical thinker.

To execute demanding vessel handling skills in dynamic conditions and maintain stability.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

To do these things one must not have the audacity to claim one is a Coxswain simply through having hands on the helm, but to act out the safe behaviors and live it as a way of being.

This requires self-inspection and remarkable observation of fact, rule and danger, and an investment in preventing on-duty tragedy.

SET A NEW LIMIT

CONCEPTUAL SCHEMES OF LEARNING

You've done a lot of difficult things in your Rescue Water Craft career. Have you gotten comfortable? Did you arrive at a level that you set as your baseline or have you driven to another level?

Wherever you last landed, its time to get traction going again. We must continue our education to avoid catastrophe in the field.

Remember, your training is not just about you, its your crew and the survivors, you are working for a lot of people who are depending upon your expertise and mental execution of critical decisions. This means you need to keep honing your skills.

PRUDENT MARINER

We cannot control the weather or the water conditions. However we can control ourselves. When we know where our capabilities last rested, we can appreciate that we are capable of much more!

Do you have a perception or a conceptual idea of what you limit is? Trust me, there is more. Perhaps you are too comfortable and
you haven't taken time to stay updated. There is nothing worse than to close the book and forget what you learned.

Pull out your training notes and review them.
Watch your training videos and look for the useless points of action and signal the highlights of potential.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

There is so much opportunity in your potential. Don't restrict progress by being comfortable. Remain unreasonable and open up the Owner's Manual or get the Rescue Water Craft splashed and go over your basic fundamentals.

You are not what you could be as a Coxswain. Make a commitment to attain a new ideal, a new level!

Don't fall backwards, get back in the race and put the pedal to the metal and get your knowledge base going again!

LIVE LIKE YOUR HERO

LEGITIMACY

You are that person, its a legitimate potential of chaos and risk, and we want to come home and that is reliant on all our decisions in actuality.

Live like your hero or die a zero, cute sentence right? Could be true for some who have lost their life because one important action was missing from their behaviors underway.

We help each other when we help ourselves, we hold ourselves responsible and its an indication that we are the stewards that transform the risk of life lost to the recovery of life, and they are people, real like you and I. We are them and they are us.

We don't want you to suffer the neglect of an incomplete behavior or program. We care and our partners care. That is why we are in business and its a reflection of our mission.

Restrain your emotions and upgrade your professionalism. Yes this is important and its not just chatter.

Digital communication has evolved and we have adjusted, we must consider the objectives of digital influence. The competitiveness of attention online is a cycle of weakness.

The cycle of seeking likes and an audience we need to be cautious, publishing misleading content is not to be rewarded.

We need to triumph the negotiation of will that works diligently towards not causing harm.

We cannot afford a mishap the same as we cannot afford an unreputable post. It is your role to judge and decipher competency, this requires effort and investigation.

TAKE ACTION

Our communication and connectivity is greatly impacted by social media. We communicate in forums, private messages and groups. We confront publicly or privately the world we work in and how we want to transform deadly potentials into safe practices.

We have all made mistakes, we hold ourselves accountability because we believe we are the steward of this sacred trust. We have a huge responsibility, its a significant burden in fact. Let's make our digital footprint one of validity, valor and encouragement of safe practices.

How can you live like your Hero? Most of our outreach is conducted on social media. You can be a digital hero or a zero, ensure that your posts are clearly stated and that if you are presenting an argument, be prepared to have a solution.

If the photo or video shows behaviors that are skeptical, move on.

Think about what you are posting.

1. Is this your current knowledge level
2. Have you seen other practices that may challenge it
3. Have you researched the difference and made a conclusion on which direction to follow?

If they are not representing safe practices, move on. If they are not showing boating navigation rules properly, move on. If they are sensationalizing and hyping up dangerous and negligent operations, move on.

THINGS HAVE TO MAKE SENSE

There has to be meaning in our shares, this is how we can sustain our maritime community. We do need to challenge and discuss pertinent information. It should not be impulsive and narrow but by taking on the high end of responsibility and then you have a reason to question motives and results. You become a credit to yourself and our community, and we need you!

Digital conflict is real, and sometimes its not sufficient and lacks the next step and can be misinterpreted. Make sure you outline that and explain it in your descriptive field.

Professionalism will place their name on their work, their articles will be consistent and well sourced. Follow these people. Use your tools for searches.

Many online pages are stealing content, altering the original presentation and altering it for dramatization and likes. Be careful if you repost these type of images. Take responsibility for your choices, its going to take you time, yes, but you may be a leader that is needed now and people are listening!

Think before you share information that is misinformation, be the solution. Lives depend upon it!

THE TRUTH OF PROGESSION

PROFESSIONALISM IS A BEHAVIOR

The truth of progression lies in our choices regarding education. The educational abilities are going to become our actions.

Our behaviors as professionals are storied in the prevention of accidents, drowning or deaths. Its a huge responsibility and requires serious dynamics of time and focus.

How do we determine fake news and fake programs? They should be vested in a credible resource that has vetted the program and pitted it against USCG boating rules to start with.

Does the program have meaning?

Does the program represent the equipment manufacturer recommendations and inspections?

As a subject matter expert who created the RWC and night qualification programming I have seen very few programs that thrive. Most of them are moving towards something unreliable. This is not optional.

Their program goals are misaligned. That means they don't have their fundamentals clearly aligned with seamanship skills.

We see this often in digital media presentations.

TAKE ACTION

What can you do regarding fake Maritime news and unsafe practices?

1. Take Responsibility and be Skeptical: Safety is a behavior, it is not a ‘click’ or a retweet or a repost!

2. Who is the Poster? Do they have 10 or 20 years of expertise on the subject? Do you see a red flag?

MEDIA OUTLETS DO NOT REPRESENT OUR COMMUNITY

When you read an online article, use discernment and realize most of the content may be patched or haphazard. Many use stock images that do not relate to the incident or craft design. Their terminology may be wrong. If you give an interview ask them to allow you to proof it first for release, or decline the invitation:

Research the Presented Content: Discover the factual evidence. Use google to put in key words, then see how many similar stories are discovered and do they align and are they reputable sources? Who is the original source? Search google images, videos and text. Is the content original or pirated? This undermines our professionalism with false data.

What Does the Evidence State? When you stop at a meme, photo or mishap video, open up tabs on the browsers and start reading and reviewing the presented content. Is it professional? Research and determine if the source is credible and its presenting a 100% solution to their viewership. Otherwise you are the problem in partnership with their unreliable marketing goals.

THINGS HAVE TO MAKE SENSE

We have to be able to negotiate our boating safety practices and protect our seamanship skills.

They have to make sense. This means you must be a boater first and a rescuer second, its not the other way around!

There are no shortcuts for water rescue teams, when you incorporate a Rescue Water Craft, you now have a marine unit. The rules change and you cannot dumb them down, in fact you need to ramp up your game! These are not toys, they are serious power craft.

Accidents should not represent our maritime community, competency should! No person who creates a mishap should be called a hero, nor lauded as competent, instead urge them to understand the risk better and to resist dumbing down the reality.

Lifesaving depends upon professional behaviors and actions, anything else is deadly, dangerous, negligent, or bearing on gross negligence.

NOT THE STATUS QUO

PROFESSIONAL SAFETY FACT CHECK

Gatekeepers are gone, they have been taken out by the twitter mobs.

Become a digital gatekeeper. How do you do this?

By understanding our human nature and resist the bias and increase the social need of protecting the culture of safety, not just clicking on the mishaps and attacking the viewer…...what is missing?

Answer: Constructive critiques and activity that is competent, reliable and factual.

Whom is benefiting? The common culprits are twofold:

1. PWC Operators who are not qualified Rescue Water Craft Coxswains or competent Instructors

2. Action Sport Companies, Media or Sponsors

SPEAK UP

Action sports media and sponsors benefit by selling the mishaps and sensationalizing the drama. These illustrations dumb down our maritime heritage.

One of the main culprits is the ‘big wave surfing’ community and their self-appointed water safety members whom by and large and not representing boating safety. Many self-appointed operators are causing repetitive mishaps and focusing solely on the negative drama for attention. They lack the acumen of fundamental boating safety to determine that they are at risk, and that this is a high risk boating activity.

They are funded by major corporations that broadcast these embarrassing boating mishaps at the exclusion of the performance of the athletes involved. This also holds the professional development of incredible water activities hostage by diverting the athletic scope and determination by dumbing the activity down to sensationalism in the hope that a PWC being demolished by poor Operator decisions in a big wave locale and selling the likes as an advertising platform.

The good news is they can change. But they have to admit their mishaps are not beneficial, until then we hope they do not kill themselves or the athletes involved and can find humility to get properly trained.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

Mishaps that occur with operators of this type should not be lauded, but directed to undertake proper boating safety and training to be qualified so their goal is to reduce the mishaps.

Its called “Risk Assessment’. Which leads to: Risk Management. Which leads to ‘Risk Mitigation’. Which is first determined in a competent boating education program. They may use these words boldly like a sheep in wolf clothes but do not understand the catastrophe of their actions.

If a mishap occurs an After Action Report of the mishap would determine the flaws and pitfalls of operations and the Decisions Making Process.

While many of these big wave operators use these words carelessly they do not understand how or why risk is managed, reduced, transferred or monitored underway. The video results speak in volumes. This is not what represents a competent boating program, nor our maritime community.

Resist sharing mishaps unless you use these reckless operations as a tutorial for boating safety education on ‘what no to do.’.

Be skeptical of the visuals and do not share if they are sensationalizing instead of educating. It’s that simple. By doing this you also guide these operators away from trending mishaps through drama and impress upon them that their lives and reputation actually matter!

PRETENDERS FAIL IN ACTION

TRUTH IS A CONSTANT SEARCH FOR SAFETY

Fake Digital Safety News is a big part of our maritime community and its hard to beat the down turned results and the problems that are generated from the viewers lack of loyalty and research.

Do your homework! Don’t be duped by subversive activity that keeps you from learning, seeking knowledge and protecting our maritime safety behavior.

When you see a video that is obviously slanted towards sensationalism, seek the authentic rules of engagement for professional development!

SPEAK UP

Speak up against unsafe practices by asking ethical questions to the poster.

Be willing to defend safety, and not succumb to polarizing our seamanship skills by silence.

The strategy of counter measure for quality content is part of your personal and professional protection. Reputation does matter, in fact it saves lives. Don’t be seduced by the pretty pictures.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

Now that we have had a decade of digital influence to determine the negative impact and our past participation thereof on social media, we have a flawed gauge to correct.

We have progressed along with our equipment.

Our practices have adjusted.

We learned from incidents and promised not to repeat them.

We strive to reduce mishap and injury potential in a risk filled world.

We are not risk aversion focused, we know we must train to the reality of risk.

Unethical digital influence of our maritime culture begins with any negative desire to argue and fight or pleasure taken in the failures of others instead of counter measures of trustworthy data supporting our sacred public trust.

This declines our community solidarity and does not allow us to progress and as united culture.

Don’t be taken advantage of by not being smart enough to decline, decipher and decide the difference between professionalism and hack digital sensationalism preying on our human vice.

OCCUPY YOUR KNOWLEDGE BASE

SAFETY IN ACCURACY

We pay closer attention to our negative emotions so we need to correct this entitled behavior and protect our water safety values by enforcement of the positive values. If we don't do this, with regard to technology we will surrender in media to an increasingly desperate attention market of a new media order that often does not communicate safe practices.

Who are the gatekeepers of reason? We are, you are.

Sensationalism is the determination to capture viewer engagement:

Where people are seeking the negative rather than the content of theory vs capability. This is problematic for us as an individual and for companies like ours its vital to the marketplace.

We are to progress from a base point, and move ahead and continually adjust and correct any measures determined to change due to technology, accessory and vessel changes.

DETERMINE YOUR SOURCES

We ask our student cadre to question and challenge our training methods and provide obverse evidence. Its healthy for all of us to do this, in fact we demand it.

We should all be skeptical when learning and to continue in skepticism to ensure our methods are valid! This is the narrative we need to determine falsehoods.

Our goal is quality content.

Metadata is manipulated by artificial content used by math and algorithm. Real people may engage in social engagement, but its tough to get into that queue when competing with 'mishaps per view'.

One of the biggest media culprits of this is the big wave safety culture, or lack thereof. Mishap after mishap is pushed as viable operations and we cringe in horror. The corporations backing these athletes during these incidents receive the benefits of manipulation by promoting these near death experiences more than the athletes they are on duty to protect! Their athletic prowess is reduced to a side show instead of the pursuit of big wave surfing, rendering the faulty rescue mishaps as click bait opportunities.

These water safety teams do not realize the manipulation they are under and have not questioned if their repetitive mishaps have solutions. These videos will remain as evidence in future lawsuits of the lack of boating safety knowledge, especially with a storied maritime attorney on behalf of a grieving family.

The content creation is sole source, however you see the re-branding industry to push out auto generated videos for businesses, they manipulate the business to business service for attention economy.

We likewise do not put out our training modules in steps online, we invite people to view snippets of our training narrative to determine if it makes sense?

1. Does the practice appear safe?
2. Does it measure up to response need?
3. Is the craft managed competently?

When we study online videos we look for the same observations. We square them up with the end point of maritime safety and seamanship skills.

Make sure this is your aim. And continually aim high and exceed your status quo of standards.

You can make your individual and collective behaviors an operational goal beyond what you assume is correct.
In fact we encourage your to delve further and put time into your research, if you do not, you reap the rewards or you
may reap a serious mishaps or program failure.

Withstand the destruction by uniting your social footprint with research, you will feel better.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

The Critical Mass is to determine how to discover real people who need real solutions rather than artificial engagement.
Likes, Views and Followers may not be genuine.

It's difficult to resist the modern change in communication. How do we know we are receiving fact vs. fiction? How do we know if we are learning appropriately? You have to research. You must invest your time in education, not following any leader.

B roll, photos and audio are used to create content for legitimate users. This technology can be cleverly downloaded and altered with the algorithms that red flag under fake email accounts or not and auto created content has the influence to change how people think. This propaganda is coordinated vs authentic.

You can also scrutinize sponsors posts, is it one more mishap they are posting after another? Is it one more PWC drama fest? Where are their competent positive posts? How many posts are accurate and represent our seamanship skills? If not, step away from their carnage and write them a professional letter of correction to cease and desist promoting reckless operations of their sponsored athletes or staff members.
