RE: Calling mayday/pan -- an idle, sexist thought

My wife hates to use the VHF radio on the boat. She never uses it. She rightfully thinks its part of the man's job.

I have trained her, though, to handle it in the case of emergency. And when I was flying she did take the Pinch Hitter Course in flying which was to teach her to deal with in-air emergency and land the plane if I were incompacitated.
