WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO DIE IF WE CAN ALL BE TOGETHER BY GORDON BROWN


Q1. List the steps taken by the captain
(i) to protect the ship when rough weather began.
(ii) to check the flooding of the water in the ship.

(i) When the rough weather began the captain dropped the storm jib and lashed a heavy mooring rope in a loop across the stern. Then he double-lashed everything, went through the life-raft drill, attached lifelines, donned oilskins and life jackets to protect the ship when the rough weather began.

(ii) The captain used hammer, screws, and canvas to repair the holes that were causing water into the ship. He managed to stretch canvas and secure waterproof hatch covers across the gaping holes. Some water continued to stream below, but it was manageable using spare pumps.
