Jaye D. Springs School. Seff. Safety inside the ship.

Are there handles or some type of support on the inside of the ship to hold on to when the ship starts to tilt?

Hi Jaye and yes! there are handles and posts all over the place.  I think there are 3 in the shower area!  Definitely helpful when the seas are rough!

Large waves

Hi Mrs. Seff,
About how high was the porthole that you filmed the waves going by? Any estimate by the crew how big the waves were? I can tell you from lots of experience, that if you get seasick, you absolutely can recover while still at sea!

thank you
Mike Minett

Hi Captain Mike! The porthole was about 8 feet above sea level, and the waves were from 8-12 I believe.  And....my own experience on Jalpari that one time I was seasick was......it didn't stop until we got to Bermuda!
(:

(Captain Mike is a great friend and was the captain onboard the sailboats I did deliveries on, traveling back and forth from the Caribbean-Sag Harbor NY or Sag Harbor NY-Caribbean, always via a pit stop in Bermuda)
lots of love Mike and thanks for joining us!-Lisa

Has any accidents happened on the ship so far.
Thank you for your time. :)

Hi Peter!
Fortunately no accidents!  I think everyone on board knows we have to be super careful in a ship thats constantly moving.  We use a lot of heavy equipment but we're all very safety conscious.
good question!
safe seas,
