I would just give them a quick 5 minute chat as I show them around. something like the following. There no point in scaring them with a long list or boring them.
"Welcome aboard" "
I just give you a quick tour of the boat and we will get you and your gear
settled. Why don't we start down bellow.
This is the kitchen or galley
. The beer
is in the cooler, help your self anytime, when we are at anchor
or tied up at the end of the day.
There's a fire extinguisher. in here. and one by the hatch
we just came down.
There's the main radio
by the chart table and a handheld by the exit.
Here your bunks, you can store your kit there. By the way we have a life jacket with each bunk.
How about I show you how to put one on.
The exits are the hatch
we came down through and the hatch in the fore cabin
. It opens fully. I will show you how it works.
We will be towing a dingy and there is a life raft in the cockpit
You may need to use the can. Its a bit different from the ones at home. I better show you how the heads work now. It will save awkward questions later.
I'm just going to put a pot of coffee on. If you like I will show you how to put the stove on and where the coffees kept.
You can ask me any questions you like about the boat and where we are going while we have a coffee. Or any other time.
Having coffee is a good time to explain things like sailboats are meant lean over. It won't tip over. one hand for boat one hand for self. Unsecure stuff flies about.
After we have had a coffee. I will take you up top and show you the ropes if you like. and we will get ready to go.
Most of it will have already been forgotten by the time you have had the coffee so be prepared to say it all again as it comes up.
All the rest can be said as we go along. a quick chat on how we will be leaving. and a little job to do. Give em something to do they wont get in the way.
When we put the sails
up tell them what you are doing, explain about winches.
