Your Powerboat through Fog
Tips for Maneuvering Your Powerboat through Fog
You’re a responsible powerboat owner and know the importance of taking precautions whenever you head out on the water. However, sometimes you may find yourself trapped in bad weather, and this includes fog. What do you do in such a situation? How do you deal with fog and avoid confronting it in the first place?
Make Sure Other Boats Can See You
While you’re out and about in foggy weather, make sure that other boats can spot you. Have a fog horn on your powerboat and sound it every two minutes. Even if you feel you’re the only one around, make sure that you do it. If you require emergency assistance, the noise from the horn will help people find you. Take out any lights that you have stored on the boat and turn them on. This may feel like a daunting task, but you will regret it if you don’t do it.
It’s not enough to be seen by other boaters – you have to make it easier for you to see what is in front of your boat. Be aware of what is around you and move forward slowly. This doesn’t mean that you have the right-of-way, and everyone else should stand aside. If another boat is coming around, let it pass without problems.
Pay Attention to the Weather Forecast Ahead Of Time
To avoid getting stuck in fog, check the daily weather forecast before you depart. If you believe you may experience fog, play it safe and stay on the shore.
