Do you have a float plan? If you’re new to boating this is something you should get in the habit of doing. What’s a float plan you ask?
Simply that boaters inform a friend or family member where they plan to go, the route they’re taking and the time they are expected to return.
This is something that the U.S. Coast Guard strongly urges, as it will greatly aid them in the event of an accident, foul weather, or any other unexpected event.
