420 - Better Left Lost?

I was not sure I was going to release this one. I have never been a fan of solo episodes. Maybe it is not liking the sound of my own voice recorded. Here it is with most everything left in. We have quite a backlog of episodes that needs to get edited. We hope to get caugt back up very soon. Thank you for your support, Darrin Undercurrent [https://www.undercurrent.org/](http://) **Liveaboard Safety** After the Conception tragedy, we are led to think about the safety of liveaboards on which we all have traveled worldwide. Have you ever been concerned about a boat’s layout? About the crews’ competence in time of a problem; about your sleeping quarters; the battery chargers; the night watch? We’d like to hear your views and concerns and whether you have taken any special precautions. **Smoking Aboard?** Firefighters tell us most house fires start in the kitchen or are attributed to careless use of cigarettes. Recent events have made us more aware of this potential hazard. Smoking is commonly banned in places of work and public areas for health reasons, but fire affects everyone, especially on a boat. It would be relatively easy to ban smoking on American liveaboards, but less so in foreign countries where smoking is de rigueur. Do you think smoking should be banned aboard? **Atomic Regulator Hose Recall** Huish Outdoors is recalling some Atomic regulator hoses with a low-pressure hose swivel next to the second stage. Affected hoses have a hose crimp that bears a date stamp D0717. If you have any doubts, call repair guru Robert Stark at 310/947-8523, or you can e-mail him a picture of the crimp; or take your regulator to an Atomic dealer. Atomic ...
