Loved your safety planning.

I'd also like to know more about the FLIR system you're using.

Hey OD. Thanks, A "little" safety planning can go a long way .
In addition, we still plot our hourly position on an "old school" chart. Have a Weems and Plath Hand Bearing compass on board to check position. Have a Solas approved Liferaft, Ditch Bag and EPIRB.

The Jack Lines at night are easy to run and clip in to and I feel critical as the best view from the pilot station when running bow up is outside the wheelhouse on a step with easy access to the throttles. BUT all it would take is a rougue swell and you could be swimming.
