Wow! Sounds like he's immersed in his teaching methodology.

Following last night's discussion it was felt the following topics could be suitable for refreshing/practising
  • MOB drill
  • First Aid At Sea
  • Radio Refresher

Kevin is available for talks on sea survival
And Nash has some Lifeboats contacts who are generous & with their time & advice.
There are many excellent PBIs out there who could fit in with a bespoke booking.

Wow this is taking shape nicely, I'm sure that GAFIRS would gladly donate a classroom at their headquaters if money was to be raised, perhaps someone at GARIFS could organise a Flare demo as well? Finished off with a BBQ.

I am sure you could be in charge of "MOB Deployment".
