Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Small Craft Advisory means wind speeds of 25 to 33 knots and/or
seas of 5 feet or greater over the coastal waters are expected to
produce hazardous boating conditions to small craft.
Inexperienced mariners... especially those operating smaller
vessels... should avoid navigating in these conditions.

Mariners should pay close attention to the marine forecast... and
consider wind and sea conditions in planning.

A gale watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to

and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.
