Setting up such a system on your boat will do a great deal to keep you from coral misadventure.

Among other topics spurred from this thread, we were talking about putting rat lines on just last night. We also decided to get headsets, though the reason was for docking, but your point is well taken.

Fish hooks started the conversation after she read that post, ....because apparently, I have a TON of them. All shapes, sizes, and lures you have likely never seen! It's an addiction, yanno.... at least, that's what I tell her.

Wifey used to sew her own clothes, and she has her teaching degree, so that added to the conversation. Sadly, so did my overabundance of tools. *sigh*

She's sitting beside me watching me type, and just suggested we hit the dollar store before we leave. Oh my! Paper, pens, tiny toys, we would have friends forever!

Good thing we are looking at a 52' boat!

If it makes sense, that's easy. This all makes excellent sense.
