Contingency Plan on the Boat

There are many problems at sea caused or caused by user error. And at sea, most of the time around you, you won't find a person or means to help you instantly. The most important element of being a good sailor is knowing how to be self-sufficient. Sailors who do not have enough experience and do not develop themselves are open to all kinds of problems and dangers.

In order to prevent all this, you must have knowledge and order on the boat. Security measures, information to the team and warning signs should be hung.

Location and contents of first aid kit

The location of the first aid kit on the boat must be easily accessible and the location of the boat must be well known to everyone inside. First aid kits sold on the market may not be enough at sea. For example, ammonia against bee stings, ice spray compressor or seasickness against sprains, but the drug is not found in these first aid kits. Most of the time there is no ice on the sea and it is impossible to find the doctor.

So, on the sea, the first aid kit is of great importance. The boat's crew should edit the contents of first aid kits and be informed about their use.

Emergency Phones

In any case that goes wrong, it should be well known who should get support from whom. For example, if we are doing daily trips in a particular area, telephones such as the sea rescue team, marina or fisherman's shelter in that area, if any, the authorized guard, security guards, doctor, ambulance, etc. should be written in a corner on the boat. A special section can also be made on mobile phones.

For example, if we are cruising in bodrum region, people who may need to be reached in case of emergency should be registered with preliminary names such as BODRUM – Dr. Adem, BODRUM – Search and Rescue, BODRUM- Fisherman Ayhan etc.

 

Being Ready for Emergencies

Boats may have emergencies such as taking water, fire, stranding, breaking the mast, catching a storm, injury as a result of falling, engine disruption, running out of fuel, etc. For them to think of an action plan in advance, it will always be the right way for you to.

For example, in a boat that starts to take water without an accident, it is necessary to know which areas to look at, where valves are located, engine water retrieval, filters, etc. Access to such areas should be easy and should not be filled with materials.

Fire extinguishers must have been under the forehead and maintained to respond to the fire. There should be a fire blanket next to the stove for emergency intervention.

Precautions are also required to ensure that minor problems such as engine failure and fuel depletion do not cause major problems. In a motorboat with a single engine, the deterioration of the engine means drifting and will cause the sea winds to drift ashore. It would be important to have an emergency mooring system for such situations.

In case of any emergency, help can be obtained from the line of 158 numbers of THE PERSONAL SECURITY COMMAND. 

 

Train the boat crew, even if it's short;

If you are the only person with information on the boat you are cruising, you need to train the team. Because if you need help, the team will support you. For example, if you only know how to hold the boat's rudder and give way forward to the screwdown, you'll be unassisted in a situation like falling into the sea, etc. So at least you can teach the engine to move, to drive. You can briefly teach radio usage, communication frequencies. Throwing ropes and tying ropes will make your job a lot easier if you teach them.

 

Maintain Order on the Boat

It is very important to maintain order and take precautions to avoid an emergency on your boat. It is necessary to collect the ropes that fall into the sea, not to hang out of the boat while cruising, to connect the razors swinging on the sides, to avoid the sailing system in strong windy weather in sailing boats.

Unfortunately, serious injuries can occur as a result of very simple mistakes. Last year, young people hanging their feet from a boat cruising in the throat, as a result of the collision of another boat, such as injuries, even a simple situation can lead to serious consequences. Especially when visibility is limited, cruises are among the most dangerous. More care than ever should be exercised at night or in thick fog.
