Maritime Mishaps - Don't Let This Be You!

Emergency Equipment for Boating - Continuing Education at Seattle Central College

Class Overview

Let’s face it, accidents happen to the best of us. The key to happy boating is how well we learn from our mistakes--or even better, the mistakes of others. Join us as we take a lively in-depth look at ten real-world maritime mishaps with the goal of understanding common errors that you can avoid to keep you out of harm's way. We'll review the facts presented in official incident reports, discuss and debate what went wrong, and see if we reach the same conclusions as the investigators. Special attention is given to underlying rules and related safety recommendations. You'll come away with valuable take-home lessons that will hopefully prevent history from repeating itself the next time you head out on the water.
