Practical Deck Seamanship
Join Mr. Chris Leavitt, past Commander of the Houston Power Squadron and former Sea Scout Skipper, and a coastal and blue-water sailor as he presents Practical Deck Seamanship.
Chris will talk with you about the seven watches (and their practical importance), explain bell time, explain the duties of a lookout and demonstrate how to report objects in view to the helm. Also included will be how to report wind directions (with respect to the vessel) and communicate with the helm or wheel and the navigator. The conversation ends with the ‘why’ and ‘how’ various logs should be used on your vessel (deck, engine, maintenance, etc.).
Please, enter the teleconference early, and
after you announce yourself, mute your audio.
