Being a mariner is a thousands year old calling of boat wrecks, capsizing and drownings in our wake.
Seek a mentor or qualified boating safety instructor who realizes ‘that what is fatally flawed in training that they have already discovered’, they can help their students with the limit, until they reach the limit of their instructor.
Safety is a behavior, it is not a word or a phrase. It is an ACTION!
WE ARE BOATERS NOT LIFESAVERS
And hopefully both instructors and Coxswains have the courage to go beyond and continue to modernize the rescue mindset for Rescue Water Craft operations.
Do not be held hostage by a training manual.
Seek the creators of the discipline who are living it, as it if were their life.
We adapt through our training methods and demands because it is not complicated to comprehend the reasons why. Its the probability of patrol, response, search and recovery. It's also a part of that necessary maintenance territory we must endorse 85% of the time. 15% of your operations may be in the field on the water, the rest is program maintenance and recurring training.
We can scale our adaptation to the order of safety.
Collectively through mutable experience levels and personnel discussions, we can scale our adaptation to the order of safety.
we can scale this up to the order of how the ocean moves, how the river flows, how the weather bears down in the negative.
How do you know the full extent of your capability?
You train, by repetitive exposure to methods in these elements that bring out your flaws and in isolated actions and exact pieces of evaluation and assessment brings you to a competency level once you reach your training limit.
Keep training, but make sure its effective and you know your equipment and the water. Do not become a potential victim.
Be courageous or open the door to become a statistic.
