TAKE ON DIFFICULT LEARNING

CHOICES

Stop taking the easy cheap route. That is a fast track to misery.

This is how you stop progress and cheapen the results. Don’t do marginal inspections. Use good quality and proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

Operate your Rescue Water Craft in a manner that your ancestors would be proud of.

Behave as if you read about yourself in a history book and the ending was good.

Our world demands the strongest, bravest and most educated to have the wits to surmount disaster.

PREPARATION IS EXPENSE

It’s no joke to be prepared! Maybe right now by reading this post it will motivate you to pick up and move onward.

Do not feel justified if you took on marginal training. You are just beginning.

Keep moving ahead with your education. If you settle you lost the argument.

Winning generates increase.

Losing declines potential.

When you give less there is no challenge, there is nothing you can do to elevate your opportunity. That is the essence of giving up.

This is not what any of us can afford in the dynamic and often times terrifying situations we will respond to that survivors place themselves in.

LAZINESS IS AN ENDING

If you are lazy you will never possess the capability to do anything that is challenging and requires of your efforts. Your team will not be able to depend upon you.

You will easily find the objections and excuses needed to say ‘I don’t need that, I’m better than that, nobody can teach me nothing’. This is how people filled with errors hide their potential and they give far less than their very best.

This elusive behavior becomes complicated quickly. It prevents that person from opportunity.

So ask yourself this? Do you have a goal of how you want to operate?

What is it? You cannot own it if you are not capable of defining it.

Then you must admit to yourself you have to throw your sorry ass head to toe into discovering that capability!
You should fear greatly with a terrible recognition to pursue your operational goals rather than being afraid to do so!

1. Articulate your goals
2. Write your goals down and expand 3 additional needs from each
3. Learn to negotiate for your maritime heritage
4. Learn how to protect seamanship skills
5. Know who you are
6. Understand what it is you want and what will be required to access it
7. Make sure you have other options, courses, opportunities and learning directions
8. Follow a mentor and honor their advice and person
9. The ocean will win because you have to be able to negotiate its reality
10. Know your boat as you know yourself

If you want to be a competent Coxswain, you have to practice being competent.

Otherwise you are practicing by your own volition constant failure.

And that is not something you should aspire towards in your career, ever.

HOLDING A CERTIFICATE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

KEEP LEARNING

I have been operating a Personal Water Craft for over 40 years now. I still do not know enough. I study every day.

I am considered the world's foremost authority on Rescue Water Craft training and operations.

I research every day. I have much I want to learn. I am a student.

Let us discuss the value of a Certificate or a qualification!

How old is your certificate?

If it is older than three years you are outdated and need to get back into a training course.

Rescue Water Craft (RWC) operations are continually evolving. So is the equipment and laws. You do not want your performance to lag behind.

Most importantly the knowledge increases daily and so must you.

Ask me how I know?

LIABILITY

If you are relying on your certificate, that is not good enough.

Your certificate is where you begin.

Everyday I see opportunity to learn. I am not comfortable with my knowledge. I need to know more.

I want to be a good mariner.

To be a professional mariner requires more than a certificate. It requires your truest humility and respect.

If you have been operating your RWC and you have had a recurring thought that perhaps something you are doing is not right, then you need to do something about that.

You need to question your risk. Do not have blind faith. Truth will set you free and support your reputation. We create our accidents.

We damage our boats. They do not damage themselves! We need to take responsibility for this and fix any problems we create.

HUMILITY IS STRENGTH

If you are afraid of asking a question, get over your fear and ask for help.

I ask for help every single day. This is where my strength lies.

If you have a question, you can ask it in the K38 Facebook group. Every question will be answered in good faith.

There are no stupid questions, only honorable ones, so do not be shy.

We have all different kinds of Operators and skill levels here. We will help one another.

We are not competitive against one another, that is not K38.

K38 is community, not division. K38 is not negative, we are helpful. We realize we owe our ancestors respect and to honor their knowledge we share what we know.

So, do not think a certificate means you are better or have something special, you are learning. I am learning. Together we are strong. Divided we damage our Rescue Water Craft community.

Seven - 'I' - Answers:

1. I hope you enjoyed this discussion.

2. I am happy to share my thoughts and knowledge with you.

3. I want you to be strong and safe.

4. I hope that you do not have an accident.

5. I would like to see your reputation grow.

6. I would appreciate it if you would support us in protecting mariner skills.

7. I hope you will do everything you can to protect good seamanship skills.

Let's do this!

Shawn / Team

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.

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!

REWARD CAPABILITY

DIGITAL DANGER

Reward capability and reject incompetence.

We are surrounded by digital dangers in our water rescue community. Fake News is not reserved for politicians, its invasive in all areas of communication.

We cannot think in a narrow manner, we must look at our heritage. How many of our ancestors in the maritime community lost their lives because of communication or the lack of? Today we have the truth of untruths accepted as fact.

We decide in our water rescue world an ethical potential and we become the consequence.

EVALUATE YOUR SOURCES

EVALUATE YOUR SOURCES

Instagram, Youtube, Facebook and Google are the receptors and deception medium used to influence opinion.

Worst of all imitation which is often poor in procedures and peer review or lacking credibility is the re-post bait. Who was the original source and when was it originally published and is there any criteria missing?

Source the Truth: Algorithm is based on financial revenues for ad extraction. How many videos do you watch now on Facebook and at the midpoint an advertisement comes on? How do we influence using original content against visual propaganda to deprive our maritime community of its seamanship culture?

It is your role to protect our seamanship behavior and culture against the onslaught of fake imitations.

Mishaps and negative activities are the financial motivation of either the poster or their supporters or sponsors. That’s okay in the entertainment world for the purpose of amusement, which we do not represent.

How many Personal Water Craft or Operators are using the word ‘RESCUE’ on their craft, Agency Program, PFD, helmet or written language yet are far from representing the ethos? If you see someone or a group doing this, tell them to remove it and get into training!

We all need to be evaluated, especially the instructor cadre should be scrutinized heavily before they train more liabilities.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

These individuals and programs must be vetted properly. Their personality and professionalism need to be scrutinized. Programs need to be monitored and reviewed. Just because somebody wants to be ‘RESCUE’ capable, does not mean they will be or are the right fit for the discipline.

That is why the scrutineer process and standards are vital in training as it is in digital media.

Stop the unreliable operations and operators before they kill themselves or someone else. This may be our first lifesaving outreach by enforcing the standard of safety, and not the hollowness of the word. Safety is an action!

Information is made by both flawed and informed people, so understand who is sharing content and why, and if it represents our cultural standard.

If not, these sources need to go away and fast. We do not learn from mishap lessons after the fact, We prevent them from happening in the first place! This starts with you before you allow the maritime community to be hijacked by hacks who have no knowledge on the subject.

Experts are more likely to be correct and accurate than a person who is seduced by the enthusiasm and action, professionalism is a pursuit of excellence, not a protection of accidents and excuses.

Trust expertise, not those who are one step away from killing not only themselves, but those around them.

Know the difference, don't protect this problem and look the other way.

Compassion is part of our responsibility, that means we care about our community and all the brothers and sisters who respond to perilous conditions.

Become the strength.

ZERO HERO

ZERO

There is no reason to learn from mishap lessons, but there is every reason to prevent them from occurring in the first place!

When mishap admission is confronted, terrible mishaps will stop.

Every Coxswain is responsible for everything that happens to themselves, their team and their operations. Every Coxswain is responsible for the recovery and transport of survivors.

This does not mean getting lucky or dismissing reckless operations underway.

DISHONORABLE MENTION

These operators allow the repeat of potential tragedy because they are willing to hold themselves in risk behaviors that are reckless, dangerous and negligent.

These operators will fight like mad to protect their mishaps and flaws and promote dangerous practices with a passion that would be better reserved for some humble admissions of wrong.

They are not a Hero, they are an Adversary. This makes them destructive.

THE CURE

Make sure first your program is not the problem. Assess your program functionality by having an accredited boating safety instructor with current credentials assess the program. After that its time to tackle personnel issues.

1. Remove them from operations.

2. Roll back to training and remedial action.

3. Document with accuracy the inconsistencies in operations.

4. Counsel with appropriate operational behaviors.

5. Enforce them.

Safety is a way of being. It is not a certificate. It is what that individual does with the knowledge that makes or breaks operations. Stay steady, stay true and remember that risk is not a word, its our friend challenging us to be responsible.

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.

TRANSFORM POTENTIAL MISHAPS TO RELIABLE OPERATIONS

Transform potential mishaps to reliable operations by focusing on your factual goals and program needs.

No agency needs to learn from a mishap. Accident prevention is a reliable management policy. Our first goal is to prevent them from happening by possessing the fundamental knowledge base of boating safety.

Oftentimes programs are set up to fail due to a poorly aligned budget, but this may only be one element of the problem.

Sometimes the failures are from a lack of procedures that are enforced or training modules that are not helpful to the goals.

There is a lot of responsibility to manage a maritime boating unit. For Rescue Water Craft that responsibility is exceptionally high due to the nature of calls these unique small power boats will be employed.

UPGRADE

Training does not have to be emphasized as 'on-water' a lot of updates can be done by review of material.

I spend a lot of time emphasizing annual upgrades! Stay current and understand any changes to boating laws or rules in your area.

Update your team with quizzes that keep them primed for boating safety when not on the water, such as knowing the ATONS. Aids to Navigation for both coastal or inland waterways.

When you conduct training assessments on the water, be sure to correct any mistakes and be constantly vigilant as the scrutineer of safe boating practices.

A maritime background in boating is a legacy heritage to protect so that the new water rescue community understands first hand this is not rescue, its boating handling! There is a significant difference and that is lost in translation.

Emphasize: BOATING

MANAGE

Have monthly review meetings regarding your program. If you program is only seasonally prepare a management policy for weekly updates to review any mishaps.

Why? We are seeing an increase in mishaps and we should be witnessing a decrease in these areas of operations. It's because of the rollover in agency personnel, not properly training up the next Coxswain generation, not having proper documentation to transfer or its outdated and incorrect.

The good news is these are very easy solutions to tackle.
