Have you ever wondered what can happen to your boat if it is trapped in the middle of the ocean or in the middle of a lake? What will happen to it? Will it sink? What about taking a cruise out to sea?
The first thing that you should do, if you own a boat, is to make sure that your boat has enough gas in it to get you to your destination. Remember, you may be hundreds of miles away from shore, and if you have no gas, you will be stranded at sea until someone comes to help.
Once you have the right amount of gas in the boat, it is time to check the weather conditions. Weather conditions can change very rapidly and can put you and your passengers in real danger. Be sure to check the weather prior to leaving and during your trip so that there are no unexpected storms.
A battery is one of the main parts of the boat and a very important part. A dead battery can mean that you are not going to make it back to land. Keep track of how old your battery is and maybe keep an extra onboard in case of an emergency.
Even though you are careful and did check all of the essentials, things can go wrong out on the water. Be sure to have a reliable source of communication and let friends and family know that you will be gone and for how long.
