JJaponica i 5D Deck kD Diagram i This yacht is provided with a non-slip walking deck, side deck and cabin roof. Suitable nonslip footwear and personal flotation devices must be worn at all times. Be extremely vigilant on the foredeck using handholds including side shrouds, mast and rigging to navigate on fore deck area. The distance from the mast to the mooring eye on the fore deck is identified as having a distance over 1.5m means the hirer could either crouch down to reach from mast hand hold to mooring eye on fore deck, or crawl on hands and knees between the two hand holds or bum shuffle across this area. When hoisting main sail, there is a hand hold on the mast. When main sail is up this is operated from the well area. Fore sail/jib is operated from the well. Cockpit Seating in Well Area The wooden seating area provided in the well is varnished. Extra vigilance should be made within the well on the varnished surfaces. The seating can only be stood on if the hirer is wearing suitable non-slip footwear, a personal flotation device and using handholds. The crew need to be vigilant in respect of stability and hand holds in particular when either entering or leaving the cockpit.
