I'm wanting to make two lists of points to run through for an upcoming charter
with friends who have never stepped foot on a yacht before.
The first list would be to assist me in making sure that I introduce them to every important piece of safety
about the boat (e.g. how to operate the lavatory, life raft, find all of the stop cocks, operating the gas cooker, flares, etc.).
I then want to discuss how to operate the basic equipment
on the boat and fundamental processes (e.g. winding winches and storing handles, not unlocking the topping lift
before the boom is supported by the halyard
, how to tie on fenders and general information about approaching berths).
Does anyone have any lists which they would like to share with me? If I get a fair few replies, I shall merge all the lists and post one ordered list for anyone to make use of the in the future
