It sure wasn’t easy to create Rescue Water Craft training for our maritime community. But it also wasn’t hard because we put in a lot of effort.

We knew the folks who brought the product to fruition. These were chain reaction effects.

We paid attention, and listened to our mentors. We studied, we studied mishaps, history and listened to instructors and associates.

We trained and traveled, build boats and tested equipment, we went all over the world, we chased storms and big waves and worked disasters.

To create Rescue Water Craft training we had to come up with a new schema that did not exist before, why?

When this new small power boat was created; the Jet Ski®, we understood the risk, we knew the accident behavior, we lived it and we raced with those risks. t continue we focused on what every motorized culture did, we created the safety mindset.

That safety culture has saved lives and protected reputations and departments from disaster.

K38 training in itself is Novel due to this product and we were created programs to serve the need and further propel the positive use, and we have achieved this in partnership with thousands of others.

We did not do this alone.


It was the beginning of a new era of boating safety pursuits back in the 1970s. The changes in the product lines determined operator behaviors that were not always positive.

It was apparent we would focus on behavioral training and occupational enforcement of those actions. We also lined up with boating safety and the actions that would work with these boat characteristics.

It has not been easy, but we are still here focused on the mission to rev-olutionize lifesaving worldwide using these unique boats.

Working hard is not the entire solution. Being smart is part of it to a small degree of the distribution, but that is really a collective responsibility. It is about a team effort and having true content, consistency and modernization.

There are casual sequences of opportunity within our training hierarchy worldwide. Credit doesn’t always extend to those who are smart, hard-working, the creators, good imitators or bad ones.

The credit goes to the survivors of mishaps who have been positively recovered without additional duress exerted by the responders.

Basically, when instructing, the goals are to enhance the abilities of others and make sure those facts of the spectrum of training are enforced.

Otherwise there will be chaos aka mishaps.

That is why standards run strong on success, they are measured and controllable actions.

You are mandated to be current and to use and seek out the best methods and practices in regard to your boating conduct.


We constantly seek competent people. They may not have the skills initially, but in the selection criteria they have future opportunity.

Operational truth is discovered during the scrutiny of the training attempts, passes and failures. Having desire is not enough, one most understand what a marine unit is and the purposes and rules that back that up.

Its not lifesaving. It’s boating, its seamanship skills, it’s about embracing the precepts of a prudent mariner.

Or it isn’t; and those who aren’t are far too obvious and painful when observed. We want to invite them to change and uplift their chaos into boating safety control.

One of the measures for boating rescue techniques is in the mindset and subsequent performance functions a Coxswains enacts.

How a Coxswain is capable of working under pressure is a great equalizer in maintaining the ‘Seconds and Feet’ performance we have when working in any high-risk zone.

Keep working on your Novel information, ideas, outreach and training.

Set new boating goals, set three at a time and keep refining them.

Check in with your mentors.

Revisit your training doctrines.

Stay in touch with the boating safety organizations and government authorities responsible for boating in your country of origin.

Keep thinking-Keep Learning!
