Safety at sea
Always listen to the latest weather reports! Go out on a fishing trip by boat in calm weather only! Do not forget – the weather report can be wrong too!
Every person has to wear a lifejacket!
The most important safety equipment is probably your mobile phone! Keep it in a watertight plastic bag or box – always ready at hand!
Do not go out at sea alone!
If possible, preferably join multiple boats!
Use routes which you can safely recognize on your GPS. Keep yourself off dangerous shallows!
Remember the names or the positions of the angling places!
No alcohol onboard!
Take care to have even weight distribution on board!
Have respect for the sea and listen to the local people!
Take care of sufficient fuel in the tank!
