Before going out on a vessel, it is always a good idea to leave a float plan with a relative or friend, or at least with your local marina.
A float plan should:
• Describe the vessel, including its registration number, length, make, horsepower, and engine type.
• State where you are going, the detailed route, your planned departure time, and your expected return time.
• Give the name, address, and telephone number of each person on board and an emergency contact.
