The following is a safe boating message from the National safe boating
Council and the National Weather Service, reminding you that National
safe boating week is may 16th through may 22nd.

Understanding a marine forecast is critical to safe boating. Weather and
wave conditions can change suddenly, catching boaters off guard and
creating life threatening conditions.

Typical marine forecasts predict wind speed and direction, wave heights
and periods, roughness of near shore waters, and significant weather.
Marine forecasts cover large areas and the forecast elements are often
given in ranges. The significant weather may not occur over the entire
area or during the entire forecast period. The ranges represent average
conditions over a period of time, usually 12 hours, and the actual
conditions may be lower or higher than the forecast range. Boaters
should plan for conditions above and below the predicted ranges.

Take particular note of any current advisories and warnings, including
small craft advisories, gale or storm warnings which alert mariners to
either high winds or waves occurring now or forecast to occur up to
24 hours from now. Special marine warnings are issued for sudden
increase in winds to over 35 knots, waterspouts, and hail 3/4 inches
or greater and indicate a more immediate threat. Marine weather statements
bring attention to significant rapidly changing conditions on the water
including increase in winds, non severe thunderstorms, development of
dense fog and even snow squalls or strong and gusty rain showers.

You should have a NOAA Weather Radio all hazards. If you venture beyond
about a 25 nautical mile range from shore, you should consider buying
a good quality hf single sideband transciever and satellite phone.

Before setting out, obtain the latest marine forecast and warning
information. Several days ahead of time you can begin listening for
extended outlooks which give general information out to the next five days
in both graphical and text format.
