North of England P&I Club’s latests Signals gives the story of a a Chief Mate and a wet-behind the ears bridgewatchkeeper that went something like this:

Chief Mate: Can you call all hands for stations at 0230

Fresh faced lad goes away, return 10 minutes later at a loss:

Fresh Faced Lad:  Which cabin is all hands in?

Not only is it a good idea to know what you’re talking about, it’s a good idea to make sure others know what you’re talking about!
