    What makes a Good Safety Speech?

    I have a feeling now that the Safety Speech will have to Morph into something where each passenger has to sign a piece of paperwork saying that they understand the Coast Guard Approved Safety Procedures "even before" the boat leaves the dock. Expect some major changes next season.

    I think the galley stove would be all Electric the outside BBQ would of been the Propane source and any fumes in the engine room would be diesel so they wouldn't necessarily have to have the detectors you mention. Plus there is Gasoline for there inflatable stored somewhere above deck as well...

    Boat fire off Santa Cruz Island 30 dead?

    Let's be civil about this gang for now I would nix the propane switch the BBQ to Charcoal Briquets and leave the fireworks show to the professionals.....finger pointing at this point is not helpful for all we know someone could of been cooking a batch of Meth.
  72. Capt Devo

    Boat fire off Santa Cruz Island 30 dead?

    There is usually a well marked bunk room "Escape Hatch" at the forward most end leading up to the galley and one each Fire Extinguisher per ladder way but some safety items requirements are Grandfathered "in or out" like the Engine Room Automatic Fire Suppression $ystems on some boats.
  73. Capt Devo

    Boat fire off Santa Cruz Island 30 dead?

    Without smoke/fire suppression alarms in the engine room and galley or a Deck Watchman the fire may have had the chance to explode out of control. One could "speculate" a lack of adequate fire escape routes leading topside as problematic we will find out at some point if there were bunk room...

    Sad when you have to snip you mark on the gill plate or tail too, some guys swear on the wire ties on the tail but you can cut those off, I would rather just fish?

    What a mouth this guy has he is too much of a Booger Eater to know that the sport boats did him a big 10 scoop favor on those paddy's, he just didn't wait long enough to reap the rewards. His crew probably didn't pay a dime so they had to listen to his crazed bullshit all day long and spot clean...

    So sorry friend let's try to un-ring this bell your striking so fruitlessly. Captain's don't like private talks it makes them feel like they did something wrong. Also where do you get the audacity to ensue such apidatious balderdash about ones punctuation?(one question mark not two).
  384. Capt Devo

    Shady overnight trip

    It's not easy to decipher because it sounds like you were raised on a Squid Farm when the boat hit's the dock the first thing the Crew tells the Captain is if they got the JP or not. If the Captain has a good reputation he will never have anyone ever come up to have this private talk or it will...

    No not your Nav Lts..................but yes to the anchor Lt just get a D-cell 360 degree anchor Lt at W/M and tape it to your longest rod if your that worried about a restart in the morning...............an 15 watt Anchor Lt on for 6 hours won't kill a battery.
