"An adrenaline rush. Itís great, I mean, you donít, you just run"
An adrenaline rush. Itís great, I mean, you donít, you just run. You donít care, you just hear your pager and youíre like, ďIím going,Ē and thatís you away, you know. But as soon as I hear that noise, itís like the adrenaline rush in your body, you know. Itís like excitement and whatís going on and whatís wrong. But itís still, once again, curiosity, everything, you know, running through your head. What to do if this, what to do if that?
Iíve only been out twice. The first time was a boat three miles off which had broken down. With that being the first time there was me and my brother on the boat and it was a bit nerve wracking trying to think of what to do, taking down all the bearings and everything. But once youíve got the time to think about it, youíre alright, well, Iím alright anyway. I donít, I canít say about everyone else, I donít know about everyone else.
A few weeks ago, my second shout. It was really, really, really dark. It was night time on a Sunday night and obviously when it goes off at that time at night, you think, ďoh, itís got to be someone in the water- it canít be good.Ē And as it happens, with it being pitch black, itís like you donít know where you are or what youíre doing. Once you get into it, itís alright. That was the first time I had ever been on the boat in the dark.
