Safety Tip: May 2016 “Ease Off The Anchor”
Safety Tip: April 2016 “Fender Off”
When you’re going to park your vessel, plan what you’re going to do even before you arrive and instruct your crew accordingly.
Ask these questions
1. Are the fencers correctly aligned on the outside of the vessel on the correct side and the right height to protect the hull from impact?
2. Have you switched your bow thruster on?
3. Have you instructed your crew who is going to jump off the boat with a rope in their hand and secure the vessel at the marina?
4. Also, look at the winds and tidal flows. It’s always harder to park the boat into the wind; it’s easier to go stern first.
February 2016 VHF Radio Saves Lives
Do yourself and your family a favor and learn how to use a VHF radio so that you have the skills to broadcast a distress call on channel 16. Your lives may depend on it. The advantage of using 16 is that all boaties in the bay will hear your call and come to your aid. There is no RACV on the water and best chance of survival will come from another boatie. Also, you must know how to read your position and provide latitude and longitude to the rescue authorities.
TIP: Easiest way to get your latitude and longitude do this is to grab your iPhone and go to the “compass” app. You’ll see these details there then call one number- 000 for help.
