you welcome to another beautiful day here on the Algarve and to this our de skipper instructional video this video is going to give you a taster of what the de skipper course is all about this course is geared to give you confidence to handle something like this this is our boat the Osprey 41 foot Cruiser let's go have a look on board let's have a look at the course in a bit more detail on board the yacht we're going to teach you all about your navigation your chart work rule of the road boat handling all
00:47
the things you're going to need so that when you step up to the mark and you're behind the wheel on one of these not only do you understand how it all works but you feel confident in doing it let's take a look on board one of the key things you'll notice when you become a de skipper is that dreaded word responsibilities you're going to be responsible not only for 41-foot of yacht but for the safety of your crew and of course yourself with responsibilities you need to be aware of how the system on a boat works a boat is one of the last places thankfully not
01:19
run by a committee on board here skipper's king but the King needs a good crew and the interface between the skipper and the crew is paramount to a boat working properly the crew need to be supplying lots of information back to the skipper the skipper in return needs to be giving them lots of information and telling them what's going on the old adage is true that a good skipper appears to be a lazy skipper well not really lazy but delegating various jobs about the boat to the crew so that they get to enjoy it and their part and part of things a good
01:51
skipper appears to be a lazy skipper as a day skipper you're going to be responsible for the safety of the boat and for the crew you need to be sure that you delegate the duties the jobs around the boat so that everybody becomes involved in the running of the boat don't forget the day skipper ticket is your driving licence for one of these that you can charter a boat anywhere in the world as skipper your main responsibility will be to look after the pilotage of the boat into a new port your position when you do that is here
02:23
in the cockpit of the boat it's not down below at the chart table where so many people tend to think it is here the cockpit here you're in control of the boat and everything that goes on around you so pre-planning really really important as skipper you want to make sure that one of your daily checks that you do on your yacht is to make sure that your engine is all up to spec back in the competent crew video we detailed the wobbles that you need to run through that little checklist that you have of wo BB le s so that was water that was
02:52
oil that was built that was battery that was leaks electrics sieve need to make sure that everything is working nice and sweetly on the engine in addition to that we need now need to take you through an additional check that you need to run through as skipper by way of fuel and making sure the engine does run itself the first thing let's get the engine compartment open she goes make sure everybody on the boat is aware that the companion waves out of action and by
03:24
way of access I've just opened that the side hatches and indeed taking off the lower step as well W that's water she's water cord and then here we've got the radiator check we've got water in the radiator under the cap stick your digit in a little bit of water that's fine second thing we're going to do oh oh oil going to check our oil what we need our kitchen roll for that and our dipstick on the engine off to the side yes you be
03:55
here we up take her out nice and black ng door's always black pop it in make sure you've parked the boat on a nice level surface now she comes perfect just underneath the top mark that's fine that's our oil bb4 belt that's the alternator belt there we go this belt that runs round here go to a midpoint on the belt should be nice and firm but not
04:30
too firm give it a twist you should get about a quarter turn on that that's lovely inspect it for any crazing any fraying anything like that that might indicate is about to part company itself that's a nice new belt that's fine battery check the battery next the engines got its own battery specifically for starting the engine make sure the terminals are nice and fast and indeed she's all strapped in I don't a regular basis we'd be checking the cells on the battery as well that's all nice ll4 leaks make sure that the engine well is
05:03
nice and clean the old kitchen rail comes in handy again here she'll be out of eat your dinner off the bottom of the well of the engine because any leaks that might develop which would indicate a problems on its way that will be leaking into the well that's all nice and dry down there she's happy Aoife electrics quick look over your electrics makes your nothing's vibrating loose or chafing that sort of thing all looks nice and good in there finally we have SS for strainer here's our strainer is
05:33
this device that filters the seawater that the engine draws in to cool the system comes through this device here there's a strainer inside that sort of any foreign matter and it gets drawn up from outside it stays in the filter and we can get rid of it so anything like Harry had like a plastic bag and hid nasty like that we can always get that out and improve the water flow to the engine our strainer bleeding the fuel system if you get air in the fuel system we need to get that air out before the engines going to work again to do this
06:03
manually we have a lift pump on the side of the engine which will manually pump the fuel through and we release the vent screw on top of the fuel filter here to do that get my spanner located on there open that up slacken off piece a rag wrap that round the fuel filter because we don't want to spill any diesel into the engine and then on the side of the pump we've got the lift pump the manual lift pump here we can pump pump the fuel
06:35
through from the for your tank gets all the air out the system bubbles at the top of the vent screw when it stops bubbling out and we're just getting fuel out we nipped that up nice and tight job done crank the engine she should fire there we go there's our daily checks done for our engine time to close up the compartment now and do our checks up top nice and gently mind your fingers let's go up top we've done our checks down below now it's time to check that the engine actually runs there's our ignition key prop the key
07:07
into the little slot there's our throttle up and down on this boat is neutral let's give her just a few revs push the little clutch button in just give her a few ribs make sure everything's sweet there and then just like the car crank her over if it's cold you need to use pre heat up she goes just give her a few revs to get the alternator charging now the first thing you're going to do is check that the cooling water is coming out of the
07:39
exhaust because if it's not the engine is going to overheat cooling water we can hear it so let's see it as well loads of water pouring out there just the job engine running fine we now need to make sure that she works under load so with the boat nicely secured up as is always the case when we're tired alongside give a little kick ahead on the engine play the wheel to the middle give her a few little revs if you look out to the back you'll see propwash coming out there that's the effects of
08:09
the propeller underneath spinning churning the water out flowing out past the rudder she's working it into neutral then just a little touch of stern where she goes back to neutral engines fine she works under load we can now shut her down and on this one we got a little fuel starvation leaver there pull that one out engines fine when the skipper says it's time to go she's all
08:40
ready to run as you learnt on your competent crew course we got firefighting equipment throughout the boat here are just two of our fire extinguishers when you do your briefing a skipper just make sure you crew know exactly where all the firefighting appliances on board are and how they work one of the emergency situations you may find yourself as a skipper having to deal with is a Man Overboard situation very serious is a mayday situation the first thing you're going to do is stop the boat you stop the boat second thing you're going to do is send
09:11
away the gear to mark the spot where the casualty went over the side like said the way the gear three things all done in that first second of someone falling over the side your skipper it's your job to make sure it gets done you're going to stop the boat send away the gear hit the distress button you're then going to get the engine on will teach you the fast stop method of going back to pick up your casualty you're going to furlough away the jib you're then going to sail downwind by at least
09:41
four boat lengths turn round come back and pick your casualty up it's a very practical demonstration and we'll teach you that out on the sea taking the boat off the berth this is where as skipper we've got to work with our crew to make sure we get the boat nice and sweetly away from the birth right of all this we all make sure the boat is all ready to put to sea that means making sure everything down below is all nicely stored or tucked away because she's going to move around a little bit so tuck it all away let's make sure the hatches are fully closed make sure she's watertight ready to put
10:12
to sea once that's done we'll talk to our crew and have a little word how we're going to get the boat off the berth well as a skipper you need to decide how you're going to do that safely the tide tides always King on this use the tide to your advantage be aware of it the wind that's going to influence and blow the boat a little bit as well use all of those to your advantage if you can okay let's have a little look see how we're going to do this let's get our crew into action one of the main things we have to do is to make sure the boats watertight we need to close those hatches could we batten down the hatches
10:43
please we've batten down the hatches we've stole everything down below so that nothing's going to roll around when the boat starts to tip in a Seaway we've done our engine checks next thing we're going to do let's set our mooring warps to slip
