For consideration as Shiphandler of the Year.

I believe the proper sequence of orders might be:

Set the maneuvering watch!

Make ready to answer all bells!

Test the collision alarm!

Cast off the tow!

All back emergency!

Dive! Dive! Dive!

Standby for heavy rolls while coming about!

Surface the boat!

Open the hatches and ventilate the boat.

Sweepers, sweepers, man your swabs(?).

Main Control, be advised of smoke out of number 1 stack!

Right full rudder, all ahead full, start the pumps.

Make ready to receive the tows ahead.

Set the normal underway watch!
