Rescue Water Craft

ERROR TO ACHIEVE

Not All Knowledge is Equal

When we err in our training it is because we are striving to achieve specific learning objectives. This is the reason we all know why we train, we train to achieve.

You must understand how to hunger for the transcendent instead of the status quo, which is a bare minimum effort.

transcendent
a: exceeding usual limits: SURPASSING
b: extending or lying beyond the limits of ordinary experience
c: far better or greater than what is usual

The Latin verb scandere means "to climb", so transcend has the basic meaning of climbing so high that you cross some boundary. *

Your coach aka ‘instructor’ will share with you examples of their best-known practices. That is a starting point.

Prior to training your known realization was sufficient enough to maintain where you ‘where’. But to get to another level of competency you have to park that lower resolution knowledge that worked fine for the duration of operations you sustained.

Then you need to head towards warp speed to acquire higher functioning actions, through the scrutiny of a guide with those skills you desire to apply! Can you guide yourself? Possibly, but you need goals that are structured.

MOVING FORWARD

There is more knowledge than you are aware of. Do you want to acquire it?

If you said yes, then do not be comfortable, remain unreasonable and start asking questions.

1. Get out a piece of paper. Write 5 of your last mishaps.

Detail them out from the start to the finish.

2. Now Write 5 solutions!

Detail those solutions in comparison

This exercise will help you in all things.

TRANSCEND COMFORT

Keep after it, seek knowledge, don’t have a closed ego, use that internal power properly and accordingly. You must strive for the transcendent in your field.

If you think you know it all, then there is not reason to speak to you. Ignorance holds us hostage to progress.
Those who are curious are brave. They see the water rescue world as a continual adjustment of skills and equipment.

Error is our enemy and that resides within us, keep your mind organized on target goals and achieve them. From this you will continue to acquire the rescue mindset of wisdom our ancestors passed on and we ignore.

This is a moral obligation of service for water rescue. Keep moving ahead, when you are comfortable its' time to start learning something new!

Stay steady friends!

EVIDENCE DOES NOT LIE BUT PEOPLE DO

EVIDENCE IS SAFETY

Evidence does not lie, but people often do. People do this to cover up insecurity and to protect their mistakes. It is tough to admit our wrongs.

People of courage can admit when they are wrong. They have character that realizes their responsibility in the framework of action. Essentially they hold themselves accountable.

It may take repetitive mistakes to surrender to the reality of the evidence.

We understand, its similar to training methods where our instructors are guiding and correcting safety behaviors, but our students are willing to learn. They actually are SEEKING this criticism to generate success!

SACRED TRUST

Many let their pride hold them hostage and cause harm to those around them. Mainly because its a convenient behavior that serves them from succeeding. If they can get more people on that team, they create a lesser capable experience and they can hide behind false flags.

Success is not afraid of failure, in fact embracing failure is the key to succeeding and not repeating it!

Typically haphazard operators are often masked by false heroics and encouraged because when someone is wrong, its easier to surround yourself with more wrong to protect the wrong, and that does not make it right!

The strongest type of evidence is that which provides direct proof of the truth of an assertion.

They are easy to see in photos, videos and online stories, and each of these operators can be helped to develop the proper mindset needed to be a Coxswain. Even instructors are not immune to redemptive behaviors after course review of results. Video is very helpful in these remedial actions.

Does anyone scrutinize their videos before they load them for the world to review? If the obvious mishap is the relevant focal point of a video, the intention is clear. They are seeking negative attention at the sake of risking an accident.

They fail to realize that their career is at stake and that maritime law does not permit excuses seen in video presentations. In fact maritime law will use these videos as case example for prosecution.

We wrote the book on Rescue Water Craft and evidence was our teacher.

TRUE STRENGTH LIES IN SAFE BOATING BEHAVIORS

Our community has a lot of newbies who are not well versed in boat operations, but they are out there and performing. They are enjoying their experiences but are not exactly applying themselves towards learning anything that would be helpful.

Most are just imitating poor behaviors that will lead them to a mishap or an injury. Let’s not do this. You get to make your mind up right now what kind of RWC operator you want to be?

Once I had a surfer attack my professionalism because theirs was under scrutiny of a Personal Water Craft mishap they were in control of and were lucky to not have killed someone or harmed themselves. He accused me of only having theory to share and not knowing my business. Cheap shot and closed the door to learning something that could have helped him but he preferred to protect his future reputation with reckless and negligent operations of a motorized vessel. That means something! And its wrong.

This is what happens when people are afraid of knowledge and cannot understand what contributions they make for their mishaps. This man is still creating mishaps operating in denial fully fueling his ego. Nothing learned, nothing gained, surrounded by poor mentors who are just as fearful as he is.

Let’s call it what it is and not sugar coat a lie.

Get your training sorted.

Get your qualifications in order.

Your horizon will change with your competency and we can't wait to hear your good news!

How to Move Your RWC Safely

Watch Your Back

How do I move a 1,000 lb. Jet Ski on the sand near the waterline? It's pretty simple.

Here is a quick review of what I do to pivot the Rescue Water Craft. I have watched many people over the years who have not been mentored properly in how to move a boat without strain or scooping the jet pump cover into the sand.

Maybe this advice will help you?

Don't forget this: Sand is sandpaper. The more you ground your RWC and the more you drive up on the sand you are going to damage the keel. Sometimes it is significant. Oftentimes with sand groundings the sand is a light cover, below the surface are heavier hard objects that hull can come in contact with such as rocks, cobble or shell.

These boats are not made for that and Coxswains should use due caution because of breaking motor mounts, ruining the bottom hull and leaving an asset unusable or out of service for repairs. Our Kawasaki Jet Ski™ hull is fiberglass/gelcoat construction.

If you have a Yamaha WaveRunner™ that hull is constructed with NanoXcel™ and cannot take hard repeated groundings without rendering the hull with severe damages. We see lot of hull damages from boaters not knowing their boat!

PRUDENT MARINER

As your online mentor I would ask you to start thinking, open your attitude and park your ego, and learn to define what is taking place. So, I encourage you to look at physics. What does this mean?

Dry curb weight of the craft. Do you know what it is?

It is 932.7 lb. (dry), (422.74 kg)

This RWC model is holding a full fuel tank of 20.6 gallons. Gasoline weighs roughly 6.3 pounds per gallon, depending on the density of the FUEL. If using the metric system, the approximate mass of gasoline is 2.8 to 2.9 kilograms, depending on its density. (X 20 Gallons, x 77.97 liters).

The forward hatch has 2 pelican cases and lines fully loaded. Boat can hold up to 50lbs. stowage. (22.67 kg)

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

So, what I want you to do is look at mass weight, weight distribution and where the most centered mass is. it’s not at the waterline aft, it’s at the waterline forward. The sand is soft, the boat will ground in.

It’s good to put the craft angle on a list off the centerline like you so I do in the video so you can star the initial pivot. Also remember, don’t stop moving, keep the forward motion going (back to physics).

Make sure there are no other PWC's or objects in the rotational pivot point path from bow to stern.

Tidal changes make a grounded boat difficult to get back to the waterline by yourself. This can help in those situations.

This works well, it's easy and any senior citizen like myself can do it. 🙂

I've been moving thousands of Jet Skis since 1979, I think I got this covered lol

What is your goal for moving a grounded craft? To not cause harm to your back, or strain. To be able in some situations to move a Rescue Water Craft without asking for help, especially if there is none.

K38 Way of Training is the Right Way.

WE CARE ABOUT YOU

BE COURAGEOUS

We care about you, and we want you to be courageous for the job, not for the hype.

This means you make a decision everytime you place your program in motion. What are you choosing?

Is 'safety' a word represented or is it a behavior? Or is it misrepresented under the guise of water safety?

There are 2 teams in today's water rescue arena:

1. Those who live water rescue methods as a way of being and are disciplined and take time to develop programs and knowledge.

2. Those who are poor imitators taking short cuts with disregard to the reality of safety and whom invite risk to cause harm.

ATTENTION ECONOMY SAFETY DEFICIT

How can we determine safety fact vs. reckless fiction in a digital world where people are desperate for attention?
It is more obvious now than ever our maritime heritage is at war with incompetent representations that are mirroring good works to undermine safety at sea and seamanship skills.

The mass manipulation of the reflection of social discourse is spreading unsafe boating and lifesaving practices and behaviors. The outlet forum is the internet we access on a variety of devices and we can be a significant part of the problem, or we are the sole ‘professional’ solution.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

Digital discernment requires education and research. Let’s take a focused look at the ‘dumbing down’ of our maritime safety and security which follows in tack with just about every other subject on the net.

Being a Prudent Mariner is your responsibility. It takes effort, time and consistency on your behalf to debunk poor information.

You can triumph over pointing out what is wrong. There may be problems for this, but that should never stop you.

You need to risk what is right instead of endorsing with is wrong.

Discovering this reality after a horrible tragedy should never have these words attached to it:

We will learn from this accident.... because that never happens, its just repeated, and often.

SACRIFICE

INFLUENTIAL

Some Rescue Water Craft instructors are privileged due to their own self conceived status and these positions may not be favored by the team who knows they don’t have the right to question the hierarchy.

What makes instructors mature is the necessity of the goal, not protecting a kingdom of wrong.

Service as an instructor is a responsibility in saving lives, its a significant burden to bear.

WE ARE BOATERS NOT LIFESAVERS

We are a power boating community, we are to protect, I say protect and defend ‘Seamanship Skills’.

We do not see hardly any Rescue Water Craft instructors worldwide who get this, they may have lifesaving or fire training, but this does not make them a mariner nor a boating safety instructor.

In fact, this may actually make them dangerous.

Training in the maritime community is not lifesaving. Its boating education. Lifesaving is only one function of boat operations.

This is where the fire service and lifesaving services fail our maritime community. They do not separate the two and therefore they undercut the need for seamanship skills. They are essentially killing our maritime community with this mindset.

Social media and news outlet videos do not lie.

In fact, we cringe when we see the potential of risk they endorse without comprehending its negligent or has great potential to cause harm both to their reputation and survivors.

BOATING SAFETY CULTURE

Law Enforcement and the military get it, why? Because they have Marine Units!

They are vested in our boating culture and community and boating law is scripted around the personification of their use for public service and protection.

Most of our trauma comes from fire and lifeguard services and its sadly expanding. If you are in the lifesaving or fire rescue community we implore you to join our boating community and learn about our seamanship skills.
Make them yours, but do not ignore this warning. Heed this advice now, today, this minute.

This is not about pride or ego, it is about service and competency. If I had a tooth that needed work done on it i would not go to an automotive technician, I would go to a dentist.

Lifesaving is not Rescue Water Craft Operations. It is only one facet of multi-use competencies required of a competent and qualified Rescue Water Craft Coxswain.

VISION IS INTENT

SOLUTION

When a program is failing it's time to sit down and review. Is there any corruption in the program design?

Admissions and training that is effective, reliable and purposeful is what the public deserves. The operational ideal needs to be destroyed in programs that are vetted on it, and not on reality.

There is plenty of negative evidence with departments and personnel names attached to the videos and photos to fill our 'what not to do' archives. These are not going to come off the internet and can be used against them in a court of law. They are essentially uploading the evidence against them.

Let’s focus on the positives and lend these Coxswains the proper audience as guardians against reckless and negligent predatory range.

EVIDENCE BASED

The evidence for that is the natural order of nature and its negative patterns of the following:

1. Weather
2. Floods
3. Disasters of various magnitudes
4. Human ignorance of adventure without preparation.

When exposed to something new in the training field we have drama as we call it, but it’s the complexity of danger and its friends. We must face this reality based monolith with courage and knowledge.

By incorporating effective training (emphasize effective) we learn how to adapt at every level of risk. This is a scale we drive and aim high for.

We train to be bigger than the chaos we are surrounded by.

Effective training is to assist and guide those to be exposed in a safe and leveled realm of the extent of our human capability in the risk we will respond to.

Its a complimentary need and oftentimes we are quite restricted.

SAFE

Safety is a determinable scale.

Risk and chaos that is determined in the different types of call outs and environments can be overwhelming. Especially if the training is not set to meet the response. Personnel are held back to their last level of attainable skills or poor instruction.
Make sure you are aiming high and remain unreasonable to some degree. Why? Nature is not concerned with your program, but you better be concerned about the power of nature itself. It's in control 100% of the time and we need to learn to work with it, not beneath its scope.

Sometimes we just don't go, or we close a program, or we upgrade our capability.

CHAOS BY VOLITION

CHAOS

The majority of Rescue Water Craft (RWC) operators are not RWC Coxswains. There are far too many whom are unsafe operators who believe they are doing the job appropriately, however their practices are negligent, it’s easy to identify.

Here are a few examples:

1. Hulls are not in the water (hulls leaving surface contact)
2. Operators are constantly jumping waves and wakes
3. Operators lack seamanship skills resulting in unstable craft
4. Operators use improper riding position and unsafe boating practices.

These operators oftentimes have the words 'RESCUE' on the side of their craft, but their actions are far from representing a water rescue mindset, more like a recreational riding PWC racing mindset.

They fail to understand what 'safe speed' underway means. It's starting to get a little bit better but not much as too many use unsafe practices from learning on video replay and ineffective training models. The good news, they can only get better! But they have to admit where their operations can cause harm first. Are they able to do this? We sure hope so!

HONORABLE MENTION

how can we help them? Being vocal about their potential for mishaps. Pointing out their errors and leading justifications of why. They may not like this, but they need to hear it before they damage their reputation or cause injury.

What else is going on? They do not understand how to maintain the boats from a maritime safety at sea mindset and have no supporting data to justify inspections.

To mediate between the two is the discovery that there is a safe place in training, and a dangerous place residing in the individual ego. Both are at war with one another as a dynamic catastrophe of limitation.

Let’s say it loudly.

Ego driven operators are weak, they are paralyzed by their own unknowns by not confronting danger with competency measures.

Through observation of videos online in social media posts, they hold onto their behaviors and the refusal to ask for help or critique.

ADVICE

They hide in the shadows rather than brave the flaws of learning. This is how a program collapses when this arbitrary fate of protecting corrupt behaviors is endorsed as ‘normal’.

When operators strive to protect the wrongs they endorse, they are not welcome in our maritime community. Seamanship skills were built upon the deaths of mariners, crude, hard and harrowing deaths.

Train like your life and others depend upon it, but first understand what that means.

As my mother used to tell me 'get over yourself'. Best advice I was ever given.

TIME IS VALUE

Time is value, and how we spend it is priceless. Let's take a look at your program motivation.

What are your top 4 standards in which you measure your Rescue Water Craft program foundation upon?

Here are a few of mine I would like to share for your consideration and review:

1. Recurring Education
2. Goals
3. Time
4. Results

CRITIQUE

In training my role is not to be anyone's friend. In fact my role is the obverse.

I am there to scrutinize behavioral choices that result in operational movements.

Scrutiny at this level helps guide the student Coxswain closer to their maritime goals of manning the helm and becoming competent at boat handling skills.

Review the training goals again:

1. Knowledge base
2. Leadership, management and critically honest assessments
3. Research and study
4. Action

REPEAT

To encourage a team member is to make them strong.

When that happens the team gains.

Lead them so they can win.

Then you know you really care for them. Monitor all the safety elements and its a double win for both you and your team members.

You have to push them to their limits to learn. Otherwise they will never attain the necessary and vital capabilities to conduct safe and sure behaviors in natural settings that are unpredictable and dangerous.

This cannot be negotiated. When the RWC community stops, slows down, discards and excuses the need to drive hard and train with purpose, a mishap is being invited and I sure will.

That’s how you lose the game. To win the game, skills are honed and taken seriously.

Don't get too comfortable, keep reaching for the next learning level!

USE IT

It's now what you know, is how you use what you know when its time to launch your Rescue Water Craft.

You may know what your operational goals are but are you capable of executing them under pressure?

Its easy to do a drill, repeat a drill, say 'good job' and close the day.

When it suddenly gets real, knowledge is only an extension of actions addressed under duress.

That's where the chaff is separated from the stalk.

It requires a lot of repetitive corrections with the unknown. Team work is essential because your teammates can remind you where you are dropping off and how to stay in forward motion. Always work with the elements at hand, not in opposition.

SECONDS AND FEET

What can you do to get ready?

I have a simple formula that will help you.

Count.

Starting counting in 'SECONDS AND FEET'.

This is how we measure our training performance of our Coxswains.

It's not about time, its about forward movement.

Are they smooth?

Is the Coxswain maintaining a level boat?

Are the keeping the Rescue Water Craft stable by using proper balance techniques?

Is the Coxswain and the Crew steady? Are they working together or opposing each others vital actions?

Be Consistent in Behaviors and Constantly Asses, Critique and Correct.

KEEP THINKING

KEEP THINKING and KEEP MOVING!

Both of these behaviors reveal the mind of the Coxswain, their determinations and the exposure of their accountable actions.

You can evaluate these behaviors in a step by step method of risk.

1. Are they maintaining a watch?
2. Do they use effective helm management?
3. Is their throttle modulation accurate and safe?
4. Are they making a safe contact approach with the survivors in the water?
5. Did they secure their stop appropriately?

If you answered a hearty 'no' to any of these, you have some good work ahead of you!

The good news is you just modernized your program!

We thank you and your survivors will be eternally grateful for your safe management and professionalism.

Remember: A moment for safety will save a lifetime of regret.

BE GREAT NOW

Be Great Now.

It's a choice. Your choice requires of you to gain understanding.

The best route for you is to know mariners and surround yourself with those who are true Captains.

The rescue part is easy, anyone can do that, it may not be as special as you think if you are a professional Responder. Not when hundreds of rescues are performed by recreational operators all over the world every year.

Rescue, well that's the idea but its not the target, its not the essential element, but being a mariner, there is your greatness!

NO MYTHS HERE

COXSWAIN

Your goal is to become a Coxswain in the maritime community using a Rescue Water Craft. Anything less is dangerous.
You operate a boat, you maintain a boat, you launch a boat, you are a boater. But not all boaters are created equal.

Some try harder and give it their all. Because they are genuine and they care.
They care about themselves, their crew and the survivors they will serve.

This is great love, because taking care of your business first is thoughtful, its not distracted. It's not just a
paycheck, its your way of being. Your calling, your occupation!

Slow down your learning on the front side so you can wind up on the back side. Scaling your education is the endurance
of competency.
