Maybe ST(A) doesn't have red toques like ST(P) does? I've never seen anyone but Sea Training in orange floater coats.
When I was in Sea Training we had them, its possible that they fell out of favor. I believe the pilots also have orange floater coats.

The ship is closed up with "Special Sea Dutymen", meaning the ship is "fully" crewed(has enough to sail), and the pers who handle lines(part ship hands), staff steering, throttles, emergency steering, etc., are at their positions to take the ship alongside.

The folks in the orange floater coats are Sea Training, who are watching the crew, and assessing their ability to conduct operations safely.
So….an abundance of special seamen?
