[QUOTE=c.captain;60851]1. be phyically fit (or at least reasonable healthy). I don’t want to have to pull your ass to a lifeboat station if you have a coronary as soon as the bells start ringin.
- have courage (or at least not be a panicer). I want you to be able to not freeze in an emergency or worse start screaming[/QUOTE]
Two more good ones. I don’t care if you want to panic, just save it for later when we are all safely ashore again. I’ve seen a Capt on another boat with my old Company who was so large and out of shape that he could barely get up and down the steps to the upper wheelhouse and he couldn’t fit in the wheelhouse chair. He had to sit in the settee instead. No one could figure out how he passed his USCG physical. Best guess was that he, or his wife, was paying off his doctor. To make a short story long, everyone agreed that he was going down with the ship since no one could possibly move him if he was unconscious.
