LIFE-BUOY   WATCH The life-buoy watch (usually the after lookout) is a  special  watch  which  carries  the  responsibility  for detecting   and   reporting   man-overboard   incidents, providing a life ring to the person in the water, and marking  the  spot  where  the  incident  occurred.  The number of persons assigned to this watch and the loca- tion of their stations will vary with different types of ships. For example, on most ships the life-buoy watch is assigned to the regular lookouts aft. The life-buoy watch area assigned to a particular lookout includes the  decks  of  the  ship  and  water  area  immediately around the ship. This area must be kept under constant surveillance to detect the first indication that a person has  fallen  overboard.  Binoculars  should  be  used  only after initial detection of the person has been made. One earpiece of your sound-powered phone headset must be left off because the first indication of a person over- board may be a shout or a splash. During conditions of restricted visibility, this watch will be augmented by one person who will be the sound-powered phone talker. LOOKOUT   PROCEDURES The  life-buoy  watch  or  anyone  else  who  sees  a person fall overboard must shout as loudly as possible, without  hesitation,  “MAN  OVERBOARD,  STAR- BOARD (PORT) SIDE.” This call must be repeated until  the  conning  officer  takes  necessary  action  or indicates in some way that the word has been received.
