BOAT SAFETY Because the majority of Navy personnel are con- cerned with small boats only in the role of passengers, this section is written from the standpoint of passengers, rather than crew members. Every Sailor should be familiar with the following boat safety precautions:     Obey all orders from the coxswain and boat officer. Embark in a quiet, orderly manner and move as far forward as possible. Once embarked, stay in place. Keep all parts of your body in the boat; do not perch on the gunwales. Don’t engage in horseplay. Never  needlessly  distract  the  attention  of  crew members from their duties. Don’t sit on life jackets—to do so mats the filler and reduces buoyancy. When  told  to  do  so,  don  your  life  jacket immediately. Don’t smoke in a boat. During  heavy  weather,  boat  loads  must  be reduced. If told not to embark or requested to disembark, do so without argument If a boat swamps or capsizes, don’t panic. Fear is transmitted easily from person to person, and a terrified  individual  drowns  easily.  Never  strike out alone. Never  strike  out  alone.  Stay  with  the  boat  or huddle  with  other  passengers  because  a  large group  can  be  found  much  more  easily  than individual swimmers. BOAT TERMS AND NOMENCLATURE Boat  crew  members  often  develop  the  habit  of calling objects and the activities around them by their proper   names.   In   times   of   emergency,   your understanding and correct response to such terms could save valuable time. Abaft. Any part of the boat aft of amidships. After end (aft). The after end (aft) of a boat is the stern. Amidships. Amidships is a point about halfway between the bow and stern and the sides of the boat. Athwartships.   When   something   is   said   to   be athwartships, it’s across the boat from side to side. Forward end (fore). The forward end (fore) of the boat is the bow. Inboard. Inboard usually describes the area inside the boat or an object nearer the centerline of the boat. Outboard. Outboard describes the area furthermost from the boat’s centerline or beyond the side of a boat. Starboard.  When  facing  forward  of  the  boat,  your right-hand side is the starboard. Port.  When  you  are  facing  forward  of  the  boat,  your left-hand side is the port. Figure  7-13  shows  a  26-foot  personnel  boat  with features that are similar to most Navy boats. By   studying   the   nomenclature   shown   in figure 7-13, you will become familiar with much of the deck  and  hull  equipment  used  on  Navy  boats.  The glossary in appendix I of this training material will help you identify some of the terms. 7-7 Student Notes: Figure 7-13.—Boat nomenclature.
