A few of the SSS300 Crew does life-jacket drills on the SSS Chaser.

Sunday, the class for First Aid was PACKED. 


Intreped crew of SSS 300's finest!



FIre-extinguisher demos and drills were offered by the Skipper and crew of SSS Chaser and others.



The boat barn was full of an impressive collection of ropes and knots.


A fun break during the day -- a trip on the SSS Chaser's MOTOR WHALER!


Meanwhile back at base,
Skipper Anderson is constantly scouting for pizza!

 


Tons of knots.


Wow Michael made a world-class MONKEY FIST!


Grub in the Officer's Mess on the SSS Chaser
(Overheard: "It's the Officers's Mess, let THEM clean it up...")

 


A little topside fun on the SSS Chaser


OH NO!  A girl scout selling COOKIES!
(Well, there went a big chunk of my retirement fund, because she was a GOOD salesperson!)


The first aid instructor was a top notch combat medic.


The Scouts kept the instructor on his toes, by asking difficult questions involving complex scenarios that sometimes pop up on a ship far away from land.


Triage demos told us what to do....


Innumerable types of injuries were addressed.


Ahhhh emergency disaster triage practice time....


Rubber glove training -- if shaving cream transfers from the gloves to your body, you have just contracted a (simulated) deadly infection.



Oops, I think Skipper Anderson just gave himself the plague or something....


Back-board drills were one of the highlights... well maybe except for the simulated victim....




Oopsie Daisy!  To verify that the straps are tight, the simulated "victim" was flipped over... 
Disclaimer: no real Sea Scouts were injured in the making of this training course! 


One last look at shore from the SSS Chaser, then it's back to shore, and back home....



When all was said and done.... (waiiiitttt for it....)  A Great Time Was Had By All!

 

  Special thanks to the SSS Chaser Napa California, and everybody who pitched in to make this such an amazing weekend!
