Re: Photo Nh 69730 evaluation

A very small OT nit here. You always turn to the same side as the man overboard. A well trained crew will report the side, as in "man overboard, port side". You then turn hard to port to move the screws away from the swimmer, so he doesn't get all chopped up. Good thought, but by the time...
