Man Overboard

quicksilver is still stationed in San Diego awaiting deployment to Iraq. He sent me a check this month to take care of some of his expenses and I found it amusing that he used a D525 Man Overboard form to wrap and conceal the check. When I opened it I found a form with some of the following questions:

Was the man overboard recovered safely?

Did coxswain maintain position control?

Was the engine placed in neutral until victim was recovered?

Did crew recognize man overboard in a timely manner?

Was life ring thrown?

Did crewman point continually for vusual reference to coxswain?

There is a list of more questions that probably only make sense to the Navy. I guess we can all relax knowing that if a man goes overboard in Iraq (ummm...what?) that we have a procedure in place to make sure he is recovered safely.
