Lighthouse Music Fest - This Saturday 8/31/13

Ready for Fall Boating Mode ?

As the days get shorter and temperatures drop, here are some things to remember when going out on the boat.... 


Check the Weather.   Knowing the forecast and actually seeing the radar and wind predictions will make your on board time more enjoyable. Get a weather radar app for your phone or see the real  NOAA weather data.....   HERE 


Test your Running Lights.  It's getting dark earlier (by about 

a minute a day), so make sure those running lights are in working order.  Remember you must display a stern light (even if it's a temperamental stern pole type) and that running with bright white fishing lights or spot lights is illegal if it interferes with other boater's visibility 


Carry a VHF Radio.    There are often less people on the water in the Fall and your best chance of reaching out for help is with a VHF radio. Call on Ch. 16 and switch to a working channel.    For the channel list... Click HERE      


Bring Extra Clothes.   Usually you can assume it's 10 degrees colder on the water. In the Fall, with the sun setting earlier it's not uncommon to see changes of 20 degrees or more !

Before you set off on a boating trip (of any kind) there is one thing you MUST do to insure the safety of your crew:

Run through a safety checklist to insure everyone aboard knows the basic safety procedures and where safety equipment is stored and how it works.  

See the full Safety List...... HERE

Safe Boating with your 4 Legged Friends
Do you bring your four legged friend(s) out with you on the boat ?  Many animals, especially dogs, love being on the water and naturally take on the role of lookout.  
But, does your lookout know how to swim ?  
Are you sure ?  Surprisingly, many dogs can't swim or have never truly tried to swim. (wading in the water at the beach doesn't count ! )

Here are some tips to help you keep your pet safe and happy while on the boat.    For more.......Click HERE
