Please note the legal safety equipment you need to have on your boat will depend on,
- The size of the boat
- The Water Limit area you are operating in. (these are) SMOOTH WATER – PARTIALLY SMOOTH WATER- OR BEYOND SMOOTH AND PARTIALLY SMOOTH WATER (OPEN WATERS)
When operating your boat 2 Nautical Miles from land in Open Waters you are also legally required to have an EPIRB on board.
An EPIRB is an Emergency Positioning Indicating Radio Beacon.
This is an excellent safety device that when activated will alert the authorities to which a search and rescue mission will commence. This device is only to be activated if the boat or crew are in grave and imminent danger.
Our friends at Stones Corner Marine will be able to help supply your legal safety equipment including flares, EPIRBs, V-sheets and life jackets.
