Weather and tides
Any time you intend to head out boating, an essential part of your preparation should include checking the weather forecast and other sea related information which is available.
Before heading out in your boat, check the weather forecast. Once on the water, it is important to monitor regular weather reports, especially if changes are predicted. The movement of fronts is sometimes difficult to forecast and the predicted time of arrival may be revised.
