All Hands On Deck!

Ship in the midst of a storm

When a ship is at sea caught in the snares of a raging storm and tempest; that is not the time for a crew member to center his attention and focus on self – being only concerned about his own safety and well-being. It is during such times that the needs of the many far outweigh the needs of the few or the one. The safety of all on board becomes paramount. One lone crew member can do some things to make sure his own safety, as well as, that of his fellow shipmates, but if the ship is to weather the storm and return safely to harbor it requires all hands on deck, working diligently, side by side, to make sure that not one shipmate is lost at sea, and that all return to home port safely.
