Execute the Decision: Based on the DWO's ORM analysis, the commanding
officer decides to launch the small boat to conduct the transfer before
nightfall, clarifies supervisory roles, and communicates all potential
risk factors to personnel involved in the evolution during the pre-launch
Monitor the Situation: The DWO closely monitors the weather and sea state
for any significant changes that could affect the small boat launch and
especially considers the material readiness of the small boat-lowering
equipment. The Executive Officer monitors the boatswains mates'
walk-through boat deck inspections for thoroughness to ensure tripping
hazards are eliminated. The crew immediately reports any significant
changes in these factors so the CO can reassess the decision to launch.
A post-event debriefing identifies which controls were effective and the
command takes measures to implement them in future evolutions.
