Emergency Procedures

   __________ 1.          Life Threatening Situation – Use VHF and call MAYDAY on channel 16. If in
       Range call 911 on your cell phone and in addition activate the SPOT 911 feature by
       holding down the 911 button (which is covered on some units by a protective lid) for 3
       seconds until multiple lights flash. This will alert the emergency responders to your
       position. If there is an EPIRB on board, activate the EPIRB as well. If in the Bahamas and
       equipped with SAT Phone call the USCG Station Miami at: (305) 253-1527           If you do all
       these things you will have help shortly and they will know your position.
   __________ 2.          Vessel is In Imminent Danger – Do all the above.
   __________ 3.          Run Aground and Stuck – Put an anchor out in deeper water as far as you
       can by dinghy to keep the vessel from running further aground. Call Seatow or Boat US if
       you have membership. If you did not get membership, you should have, it is a lot
       cheaper than paying for a tow. In the Keys be careful not to disturb the seagrass or you
       may incur a large fine. Try healing the vessel over if it has a spade keel. Make note of
       your position and time in the log and call the charter company for any additional help.
   __________ 4.          Engine Breakdown – Call the charter company on your cell phone or sat
       phone. Possibly press the HELP button on the SPOT Transceiver so to transmit your exact
       location. Be sure the SPOT is outside facing up with a clear view of the sky, so the GPS will
       function
   __________ 5.          Phone Numbers
                       i. 360 Yachting – 305-394-9517/239-826-4425
                      ii. USCG Islamorada - (305) 664-8077

I acknowledge and I understand all the items in this orientation checklist. I have initialed every
paragraph to further signify that I have been shown how to operate each system properly.
Furthermore, I agree and understand that improper use of the equipment resulting in any
damage, shall be at my expense.

Bareboat Charter Rules & Procedures


   1. Damage Deposit – Before you arrive at the marina, please call the home office at 305-
      394-9517 to give a visa or mastercard for pre-authorization. The funds will be help for the
      duration of your charter until the conclusion of all the boat inspections.
   2. Bareboat Competency – It is completely up to the charter manager’s discretion to allow
      you to have the boat without a captain. The manager will base his decision based on
      the following:
           - Pre-approved bareboat charter application
           - Knowledge and compliance with your contract terms
           - How well you articulate the orientation information
      If the charter manager on duty has concerns regarding your competency you may be
      asked to do one or all of the following:
           - Complete and Pass the US Sailing Bareboat Test on site
           - Sea trial
      If the charter manager is not confident in your proficiency to operate the vessel and/or
      its systems we reserve the right to select and place a captain aboard your charter for
      partial or total duration of your contract. The daily rate for a captain is $250.00. Please
      note that is it often much wiser, more enjoyable, and far less expensive to utilize a
      captain than to pay for damage to the vessel.
   3. Orientation – Orientation and Chart Briefings at the start time of your charter. The time
      allotted for orientation and check out is proportional to the complexity and size of the
      vessel. The charter manager may not give you the vessel until he feels confident that
      you can operate it safely. Please allow time for this in your sailing itinerary.
   4. Late Return – Please be on time returning. If your charter ends at 12noon, we expect the
      vessel to be back at the dock with al return duties complete by 12noon.This means you
      should probably return by 10am to give yourself enough time to offload and tidy up. If
      you are late handing over the vessel you could be assessed $200 per each hour the
      vessel is late.
   5. Ship’s Log Book – It is to your benefit to keep a detailed ship’s logbook during your
      charter. It protects you to keep an accurate and legible log of your trip. If ever a dispute
      arises, the log will be beneficial in determining loss. Note things like fluid checks, engine
      hours, positions, coast guard contacts, malfunctions on the boat, touching bottom,
      catching crab traps in the props…etc.
   6. Weather: The weather can become extreme during your cruise. Please take every
      precaution to monitor the weather via satellite Sirius Weather service and via the
      monitoring reports by the various serviced on channel 16 and also with the AM and Fm
      radio stations. Strong currents against strong winds can create very hazardous conditions
      and must be avoided.
   7. Night Sailing: night sailing is prohibited on all bareboat charters except for ocean
      crossings including the gulf stream and crossing to the Dry Tortugas.
   8. Tropical Storms: In the event of a named tropical storm during your cruise and within a
      2000 mile radius of your cruising territory then you must maintain daily contact with the
      charter manager and alter your float plan to remain within 50 miles of the charter home
      base. At any point the charter manager reserves the right to call the vessel back to the
      charter base at his/her discretion.
   9. Charts: The charts do not show every coral head or reef. You must keep a watch out for
      shallow water and always double check the accuracy of the electronic and paper

 Toll Free: 866-561-2175 Fax: 941-866-8109 charters@360yachting.com Website: http://www.360yachting.com
                                                                                                         6




      charts. Please make notations on the charts and on the log where the depths and reefs
      do not reckon with the chart. DO NOT TRAVEL ON THE BANKS AT NIGHT!

  10. Remote Assistance: the Bahamas are considered blue water cruising territory and
      therefore assistance is difficult to find. If something breaks on the vessel due to the
      charterer’s improper use or negligence and it becomes necessary for the charter
      manager to send a team to assist you all expenses associated are at the charterer’s
      liability (travel time, hourly maintenance fee $80/hr, parts, and materials). There is no
      Seatow or US towboat service in the Bahamas. DO NOT RISK RUNNING AGROUND!!
      Check the tides carefully and beware of shifting currents while you are anchored. Use 2
      anchors when necessary and use the electronic anchor watch when available. If any of
      the mandatory systems on the vessel breakdown due to no fault of the charterer then
      the charter manger will come to your aid at the boat owner’s expense. Mandatory
      systems are defined as integral to the safe operation of the yacht.
  11. Return Duties – It is your responsibility to return the boat in the condition it was given to
      you.
           - Cleaning: Please dispose of all trash, clean out the fridge, do your dishes, clean
                off the decks, and spray the salt off the deck gear. All the tanks should be filled
                and all holding tanks should be emptied. Any excessive cleaning or repairs that
                are necessary at the conclusion of your charter will result an additional excessive
                cleaning fee of $250.
           - Heads: Marine heads are not the same as household toilets. The skipper is
                responsible for instructing his crew on proper head operation. If the yacht is
                returned with a stopped up head the charter company will charge the charterer
                $200/per head service fee to clear the blockage.
           - Linens and Towels: PLEASE DO NOT USE BATH TOWELS FOR CLEANING THE FLOORS
                OR ON ENGINE GREASE, ETC! If the linens are stained or torn, the following fees
                are assessed to replace:
                       i. Bath towel: $5.00 each
                      ii. Sheet: $20.00 each
                     iii. Pillow: $6.00 each
                    iv. Pillowcase: $3.00 each
  12. Return Time – The boat is to be back at the dock, clean, with tanks refilled and waste
      tanks emptied ready to be inspected no later than the time stated on your contract.
      Returning the vessel or completing the return checklist more than an hour late will result in
      a half day charter fee being assessed against your damage deposit.
  13. Post Charter Questionnaire – Please take the time to fill out the post charter questionnaire
      before you return to the dock as to save time. Please present this and your log pages
      over to the charter manager upon arrival.
  14. Damage Deposit Return – The Charter Company reserves the right to hold your damage
      deposit for no longer than 5 days. Sometimes it takes a few days to get to the
      underwater inspection complete. If there is no damage or lost equipment, we will not
      unduly hold your deposit funds. If there is any damage or loss, we reserve the right to
      hold your damage deposit funds for up to 30 days while gathering estimates from
      contractors and arranging repairs. Please remember that your damage deposit is not the
      full extent of your agreed liability. Per the charter contract you are responsible for the full
      deductible of the insurance.

‘Blue Moon’ Hunter 41 Orientation Checklist


   __________ 1.          Night Operation: The vessel is not insured for operating at night on a
       charter by anyone other than a professionally licensed skipper, approved and named on
       the insurance policy. The only exception to this is to make a passage that is longer than
       8 hours, so to arrive at your destination in good daylight.
   __________ 2.          Engine Operation:
            Engine Start and Stop: Engine Start has a Key Start. Before starting be sure that
               the vessel is not in gear and that the throttle is down To shut off the engine,
               throttle down and put the vessel in Neutral. Push the stop button on the engine
               panel. Be sure not to turn off the key before shutting off the engine. Have
               charterer actually start and then stop the engine.
            Engine Gear Shift and Transmission Control: Have Charterer put the engine in
               gear and switch from forward to reverse. Stressing that they must stop for a few
               seconds in Neutral to let the prop stop turning. We change the fluid before every
               charter with fresh ATF Type A Transmission Fluid. We will sample the fluid upon
               return. If there is any significant sign of wear in the fluid then Charterer may be
               liable for damages to the transmission. New Transmission costs $3000+.
            Engine Oil Check: Engine Oil for the Perkins 4108 is Rotella 15w-40. The dipstick is
               port side of the engine near the exhaust manifold. Be sure the engine oil is
               topped off before running the engine. Because the boat heels over, running the
               engine with low oil can seize the motor. Replacement cost of a seized motor is
               $8000+
            Transmission Oil: The Transmission is a Kanszaki Hurth KBW20. The lubricant for this is
               ATF Type A Transmission Fluid. The level should be on the tip of the dipstick that is
               located on the top left side of the gearbox, slightly under the exhaust hose.
            Coolant: The Coolant level should be full at all times. The Heat Exchanger Cap is
               on the Top forward end of the motor and is easily accessible. Coolant should
               always be a 50/50 Antifreeze mix for lubrication.
            Fuel: Engine Fuel is Marine Grade Diesel. The fill cap is on the port side of the
               boat at the forward end of the cockpit. Please be careful not to overfill and spill
               diesel in the water or onto the boat. Please cleanup all diesel spills with Windex or
               dish soap and Water. Put the cushions clear of any potential diesel spill area
               before filling. The vent is just aft of the fill and will spill diesel into the water if not
               topped off slowly. Diesel foams when filling and will vomit out the fill before the
               tank is full. The tank is a 55 gallon tank located just forward of the engine under
               the cabin sole. Fuel consumption should be 1.5 gallons per hour at 2400 rpm and
               no sails working.
            Belt Tension: The Alternator belt runs a 80 amp alternator and will slip if the tension
               is not very tight. To re-tension the belt you will have to loosen the swing armature
               bolt at the bottom front of the alternator and use a wooden handle of piece of
               wood to leverage the alternator outward, tightening the belt. When you have
               the alternator tensioning the belt adequately, have a second person retighten
               the adjustment bolts to hold it in place.
            Sea Strainer: The Engine Raw Water Sea Strainer is on the Starboard side of the
               engine. It is bronze and has a hinged cap. If there is any problem with the Raw
               Water flow, this is the first place to check. There is a lot of seaweed in the Keys so
               it is likely that this may get stopped up on a one week charter. You should shut

                 off the seacock and then pull the strainer screen and clean it thoroughly before
                 reinstalling. Quickly open the seacock before installing the screen to be sure that
                 the blockage is not at the seacock itself. If the seacock handle is weak, use an
                 adjustable wrench to turn the seacock volve. Don’t forget to reopen it when
                 finished.
             Alternator: The alternator is an 80 amp Output Alternator. We have wired the
                 alternator so it will not burn itself out by overheating. There are several large
                 batteries on the boat that will take time to recharge. If charging in neutral, run
                 the RPMs at about 1/3 throttle or 1500 RPM. Do not do anything that would
                 interrupt the load side of the alternator, such as turning the Battery Switch OFF
                 while the motor is running . This will blow the alternator Diodes.
             Stuffing Box: The Stuffing Box is the system through which the shaft goes through
                 the bottom of the boat. It will drip a little bit while the shaft is turning. This is normal
                 as it keeps the shaft cool where it passes through the packing material. If it is
                 dripping excessively, it may have to be tightened. If ever there is a rapid leak in
                 the boat, this should be one of the first places you check for that leak. If the
                 rubber is compromised it leaves a large enough hole to overcome the bilge
                 pumps.
             Bleeding the Fuel System: If Air is introduced into the fuel line for any reason the
                 engine will not start and may need to have the air bled out. Always try to start
                 the engine first, and let it self prime. Do not crank it for more than 10 – 15 seconds
                 as you may damage the starter. If this does not work, first make sure there is fuel
                 in the fuel tank, as you can not prime an empty fuel system. Next open the bolt
                 on the first fuel injector with a properly sized open end wrench, about a half turn.
                 Put paper towels or oilsorb pads under the bleed screw when doing this to catch
                 the diesel. From going into the bilge. Diesel will foul your bilge pump and keep it
                 from working so do not let diesel remain in the bilge. Get some oilsorb pads and
                 sop it all up. Keep the bolt open until no more air bubbles can be seen escaping
                 and only fuel is passing through. Tighten it up and then start the engine.
             Fuel Filters: Note that the engine fuel filter is to the Starboard side of the engine.
                 Always check the fuel before filling the tanks by pouring a little into a clear bottle.
                 The fuel in the Bahamas is notoriously poor quality and may have many
                 contaminants. You are responsible for what you put into the fuel tank.
  __________ 3.           Paint Damage Check: Walk around on the boat and note any existing
      paint damage. Review proper use of fenders, tying the boat up properly with springs and
      end lines that will move with the tide. Fender placement horizontal and vertical for
      different circumstances. Any new damage may be billed at $80 per hour plus awlgrip
      supplies which start at $450.
  __________ 4.           Water Tank Management: review locations of shoreside water hookup
      and tank fills.
  __________ 5.           Propane: The main locker for the Propane is in the port side transom
      lazarette. Valve is should absolutely be shut off when the stove is not in use. There is a
      Solenoid switch on the galley bulkhead next to the chart table. Check the tank to see if
      it is sufficiently filled before departing. Fill station in Key Largo is the RV Shop on the
      highway 2 streets north of Ocean Drive.
  __________ 6.           BBQ Grill: uses small green bottles not provided with the charter. Review
      proper operation and show charterer that it lights.

  __________ 7.         Refrigeration: There is an upright freezer and refrigerator in the Hunter
      Galley. They are turned on at the 12 volt electric panel and they do draw off the 12 volt
      system. Opening the door frequently will cause a higher draw on the batteries.
  __________ 8.         Safety Gear: Fire Extinguishers are located conveniently throughout out
      the vessel. Flares are under stored on the shelf to the starboard of the chart table. Test
      the radio. First Aid Kit is in the bathroom locker. Life jackets in aft cabin at foot of the bed.
  __________ 9.         Toilet Operation: Locate the intake valve, under the salon floorboard
      forward of the head doorway. The heads are electric pumped. Exhaust hose is long so
      they need to pump at least one additional full bowl of water to clear. Heads operate off
      the fresh water tanks. Do not flush anything other than human waste and minor amounts
      of toilet paper. Unstopping fee is $250 or Charterer can opt to fix it themselves and save
      the money. The heads on the hunter draw the flushing water from the fresh water system.
      To operate, first prime the bowl on the WET setting so that there is some water in it. Use
      the toilet. If excessive, divide the duty and flush a few separate times. When finished
      pump clear on by depressing the upper switch. After clearing refuse and pumping
      through an additional bowl of water, switch the head to the dry setting and pump out all
      water.
  __________ 10.        Holding Tank: The holding tank must be drained by pump out at a marina
      or by flushing with the macerator while offshore. The Y Valve should be switched toward
      the TANK when you are cruising near shore. When beyond 3 miles, you can switch the
      head to overboard pump out. Rules are very strict in the keys. You are responsible for
      the settings. At the charter base all heads are piped overboard and the toilets are not to
      be used unless you change the settings of the y valve and holding tank. Please use the
      shoreside facilities when at the marina. There is no pump out at Key Largo Harbor Marina
      at this time and it is your responsibility to bring the boat back with an empty holding tank,
      so you will likely need to flush the tank offshore before returning the last day. To operator
      the macerator. 1) Open the seacock with the 1” white hose attached to it located
      under the forward cabin floor. 2) Turn on the Macerator Breaker 3) Hold the Macerator
      momentary switch for as long as it takes to flush the tank empty. Run one of the toilets for
      about 2 minutes to add some fresh water into the tank with some tank deoderant
  __________ 11.        Shower Operation: Hot Water can be extremely hot after running the
      engine for a long time. Show them the button on the side of the shower head for
      shutting off water flow and keeping constant temperature. Shower Sump Breaker must
      be on for the sump to work properly. There is also a water strainer located under the floor
      that must be kept clean for the sump to work correctly. Locate the strainer under the sink
      and make note of the location.
  __________ 12.        Water Pressure Pump: This should be shutoff when not in use or else any
      leaks or open faucets could result in a total loss of your water supply. If the tank runs
      empty and you leave the water pump switch on, you will burn out the pump and run
      down the batteries. Once tanks are refilled, you will have to bleed out all the air in the
      water lines and hot water heater to get the pressure pump to shut off. Simply open a
      faucet and let it run for a few minutes on both hot and cold to let out any air while you
      are refilling.
  __________ 13.        Battery Management: There are 2 100amp AGM house batteries under
      the Chart Table Seat. The Start Battery is isolated by the battery switch and located
      adjacent to the house batteries under the aft birth. Running the batteries under 12.2 volts
      is abusive and will ruin expensive batteries. Run the engine long enough every day to
      keep the batteries charged. This should be about 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in
      the evening. Do not leave unnecessary electrical accessories on as this will run down

      your batteries faster than normal and you will have to charge the batteries longer to get
      them back up to proper charge level. You can check the battery levels with the selector
      switch on the electric panel
  __________ 14.          Electric Panels: There is a very simple and straight forward engine panel. It
      is pretty self explanatory. Note: turn off the water pump when not in use as well as any
      other item not being used.
  __________ 15.          Shore Power: When at the marina, always hookup the shore power cord
      and turn on the battery charger. The battery charger directly charges all the batteries at
      once without utilizing combiners. Please note the condition of the shore power cord at
      the beginning of your charter. If it does not return in the same condition you will need to
      pay to have it replaced. To properly connect it without damaging the ends, you should
      always be sure that the shoreside breakers ore off before connecting or disconnecting. If
      you accidentally drop the cord in salt water, rinse it in fresh and let it dry before
      attempting to connect it, or you may be exposed to potentially lethal shock hazard.
  __________ 16.          Air Conditioning: There are two AC units on Blue Moon. One is located in
      the Aft Cabin, the other under the salon cushions. Thermostats are in the aft cabin on
      starboard side on aft side of nightstand and on starboard side just forward of the chart
      table. There are breakers in the aft cabin that often flip and shut off the AC. If the ACs
      stop working. The system works best with only one on at a time.
                       i. Power off at the thermostat
                      ii. Ensure main breaker is turned on and you are connected to shore power
                     iii. Check breakers in aft cabin
                    iv. Turn on aft cabin first; let run for 5 mins
                     v. Turn on main salon ac.
  __________ 17.          Sails and Running Rigging – This is pretty self explanatory and needs to be
      gone over how to roll out the jib, raise the mainsail. Note the bimini top. If the charterer
      chafes the bimini top by dropping the lazy jacks or topping lift they will have to pay for
      the repair. $199 for patching canvas, another $200 for bending the bimini frame..
  __________ 18.          Reefing: There are 2 reef points on the mainsail. You must lower the luff
      and attach the cringle to the pelican hook then retention the luff tightly.
            0 to 15 knots TRUE – Full Sail
            16 to 20 knots TRUE – First Reef in Mainsail, Full Jib
            21 to 25 knots TRUE – Second Reef in Mainsail, Jib reduced by 1/3
            26 to 30 knots TRUE – Second Reef in Mainsail, Jib Reduced by 2/3
            31 plus – Either 1/3 Jib, or 2nd Reef in Mainsail. Head Home or downwind
  __________ 19.          Dinghy: When sailing, stow on deck or tow with all the painter out. Should
      be 50’ (to reduce stress on the dinghy and the cleats.) When maneuvering shorten the
      tow line so as to avoid catching it in the prop. To Start. Prime the fuel bulb. Pull the
      Choke out. If there is a fuel shutoff, make sure it is open. Pull start the motor. Let it warm
      up and then push in the choke to operate. If flooded attempt starting with choke in or
      let it rest for 5 minutes. Do not open the throttle to start or you will flood the cylinders.
      Make sure the shutoff switch is in the on position, which is forward. Make sure you carry
      life preservers when using the tender. Keep rubber tubes inflated, do not operate with
      partially inflated tubes. It is normal to loose a little air overnight depending on
      temperatures.
  __________ 20.          Bilge Pumps: They are fully automatic. Note pump locations and review
      proper checks.
  __________ 21.          Chart Plotter: For the electronics to work, all the navigation breakers must
      be on i.e. instruments, chartplotter/gps, vhf, navigation instruments, etc. Then you will

      have to push the power button on the chart plotter. If the chart detail does not show
      after about a minute, the little door holding the chart chip must be opened and the
      memory chip pulled out and reinserted while the unit is still on. You will hear a beep and
      the details will come on the screen. Be sure to not shutoff the unit in night vision mode or
      you will have a hard time seeing the screen the next morning in daylight.
  __________ 22.         Fuel: Fuel should be topped off before the guests arrive, but if there is any
      reason it is not topped off, please make this the last thing that you do. The Fuel Gauge is
      accurate. There is a total of 55 gallons in the tank, fuel consumption of the Perkins 4108 is
      about 1.25 gallons per hour.
  __________ 23.         Water: Show the charterers that the water tanks are full and how to fill
      them. If the aft tank is overfilled for any reason it tends to leak up into the bilge. It is wise
      to fill this tank very carefully. It can also overflow if the forward tank valve is left open the
      same time the aft tank valve is open. Water drains by gravity from the front tank to the
      aft tank. Because of the weight in the bow, some prefer to keep the front tank empty, if
      they are returning to a marina in short intervals. Water tank valves are behind the hot
      water heater and are labeled, but hard to reach.
  __________ 24.         Holding Tanks: should be empty and flushed with deodorant/bleach or
      vinegar.
  __________ 25.         Cockpit Cushions: Usually prop the cockpit cushions up when walking
      around the cockpit so to avoid soiling the fabric. When charter is complete please put
      the cushions down below on the aft bunk.
  __________ 26.         Log Book: It is in your best interests to keep a log, written in Pen of events
      such as anchoring, fluid checks, breakdowns and malfunctions, weather patterns,
      positions, encounters with legal authorities, safety inspections, damages, running
      aground, etc. We provide a simple composition book in the chart table for this purpose.
  __________ 27.         Charts: Keep the charts out of the weather. Do not let them get wet or
      ruined. Do not write in them with anything other than light pencil marks.
  __________ 28.         VHF Radio: There are 2 handheld VHF radios onboard. Channel 16 is the
      hailing and distress channel. Channel 9 is for hailing bridge tenders. Channel 22 is
      reserved for Coast Guard announcements. When calling on channel 16, once your party
      is raised, switch to an alternate channel. One other than the channels mentioned above.
  __________ 29.         SPOT Transmitter: The SPOT is a personal Satellite Position Indicator with
      emergency features. To operate, it must be powered on and in open view of the sky for
      at least 20 minutes so it can acquire satellites. The “OK” button sends the charter
      company your position and a message saying everything is alright and you are safe. To
      activate it you must hold it down for 3 seconds until the 2 center lights flash
      simultaneously. “HELP” button alerts the charter company that you are in need of
      assistance and it gives us your position. “911” button alerts local authorities that you are
      in danger and need immediate assistance. Buttons must be depressed for 3 seconds to
      activate the transmission.
  __________ 30.         Maneuvering under Power: Right Handed Prop -- prop and will back to
      Port when put in reverse before it starts moving backwards. The bow is very light in the
      wind and her turning radius is greatly reduced in forward and reverse when trying to turn
      the bow into the wind. Cruising RPM is about 2200 to 2400 RPM. If there is any drop in
      RPM first check the fuel filters or switch from one filter to another using the parallel
      switches. Turning on the Fuel Pump also helps prime the system or push fuel through
      clogged filters.

   __________ 31.     Spare Parts: Blue Moon shall be stocked with a spare fuel filter, alternator
       belt, raw water impeller, as well as ratchet set, wrenches and screwdrivers to service
       items on the boat while it is on charter.

I acknowledge and I understand all the items in this orientation checklist. I have initialed every
paragraph to further signify that I have been shown how to operate each system properly.
Furthermore, I agree and understand that improper use of the equipment resulting in any
damage, shall be at my expense.
