  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

I read somewhere that the safety briefing with passengers had to be done before or immediately after leaving the dock, and a full 'muster', with demonstrations on how to wear your life jacket, needs to be performed within 24 hours. I'd be surprised if that rule doesn't change. Airlines don't show you where the oxygen masks pop out of after you've already taken off - not that anyone pays attention, but still.....

Whaddaya mean the captain didn't effectively lead abandon-ship maneuvers? He was one of the very first people off, wasn't he? How does that not count as leading?
