I’m starting the deck/AB program at Seattle maritime this fall, and I was wondering if y’all had any suggestions regarding the gear we’re supposed to buy before class starts. What we’re specifically supposed to buy is:
-Work pants or overalls
-Reinforced-toe work shoes or boots
-Jacket for outdoor classroom activities
And for while at sea:
-Base layers (top and bottom)
-Rain pants or bibs
-Scarf or neckwarmer
Additionally we need a good pocket flashlight and a good folding pocket knife. For the knife one with a marlinspike is recommended. For the light, I currently use a streamlight micro usb at my current day job as an hourly auto tech – would that be sufficient or should I get something larger?
Anyway tips or suggestions are appreciated, thanks!!
