Flashcards in M6 Slip Departures And Returns Deck (30):
complacent [kəmˈpleɪsnt] a (džn. menk.) pernelyg patenkintas (tuo, kas pasiekta), nusiraminęs
Getting ready to sail involves planning, getting to and on the vessel and preparing crew and sailboat. Many of the essential tasks become routine with practice, but complacency is to be avoided.
After boarding the vessel, opening the hatch and entering the cabin you need to take inventory, looking for loose objects and ensuring that they are secured so as not to fly around and cause damage.
maneuverable [məˈnu:vərəbl] a amer. = manoeuvrable
Modern sailboats are highly maneuverable and sailors now have the option to have either the vessel’s bow or stern facing the dock.

1 mokantis išsisukti/išsisukinėti, mitruolis, gudragalvis, lapė
3 jūr. tentas, brezentinė stoginė (ant kapitono tiltelio ir pan.)
A dodger (also known as a spray-hood) is a frame-supported canvas (usually with clear vinyl windows) structure providing a helmsman and other occupants of a sailboat partial protection from harsh weather and seas. It covers part of the cockpit and the entrance (or "companionway") into the interior of the sailboat. One can usually stand under a dodger and be protected from rain, spray and snow travelling straight down or from the front/fore of the craft. There is little protection afforded from elements moving from aft to fore, but since the boat is usually moving forward or anchored by the bow and therefore facing into the wind this is seldom a problem.
