Boat insurance: Better safe than sorry
News from Phuket Gazette:

PHUKET: If there’s one thing boating enthusiasts let sail off into the wild blue yonder, it’s the thought of liability insurance. The lure of the sea apparently does not account for taking out appropriate coverage.

“One of the most alarming facts about the marine industry in Phuket, and the rest of Thailand, is that there is very little compulsory liability insurance,” says Mike Haynes, managing director of the Lambert Brothers insurance brokerage at Phuket’s Boat Lagoon Marina in Koh Kaew.

If a person wants to insure their own boat, that’s their business, says Mike, but liability insurance is for covering other people who may be affected.

The reasons for poor liability coverage in local waters are var…………… continues on Phuket Gazette

Boat Talk: Preparing for and staying safe during lightning storms
News from MLive.com:

A lightning bolt flashes over Lake Michigan as a storm moves over the water in this file photo. 

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — After waiting out thunderstorms all day at a Muskegon Lake marina, Gary Harkins and his wife were eager to set out in their sailboat and finally start their vacation.

It was the summer of 2004 and the Alto couple had planned to sail to Lake Huron’s North Channel. Following hours of waiting around, the couple thought they were in the clear when a local news meteorologist announced that storms had moved east of their route.

A large, black cloud loomed partway down the channel in Muskegon, but the couple thought rain would be the worst of their worries. Then a lightning bolt flashed nearby. Soon after, lightning hit their boat.

“It struck the radio antenna at the top of the mast,” said Harkins, a longtime boater and member of the Grand Rapids Sail and Power Squadron. “It blew it completely apart, and parts of that were coming down onto the water like the remnants of a firework. All my instruments went blank.”

Fortunately, the sailboat’s engine continued running and the strike didn’t blow a hole in the bottom of the boat. They got out of the brief storm and into safety, but “the vacat…………… continues on MLive.com

Safe boating courses
News from it’s a winter thing – The Macomb Daily:

By Tom Watts

For The Macomb Daily

MOUNT CLEMENS � Sheri Grabowski of Warren is thankful she and her husband Joe took a safe boating course before setting out on Lake St. Clair.

The Grabowski�s had just purchased a boat along with a used wave runner, but it was the safe boating course that made all the difference.

�We were so glad we had the opportunity to take the Boater Safety Class with Mitchell Kamlay before the boating season began,� Sheri Grabowski said referring to her safe boating instructor. �It was an outstanding class and all of the instructors were exceptional.�

Grabowksi took the course offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 20-19 in Mount Clemens, and now she and her husband boat on Lake St. Clair with knowledge of how to be a safe boater.

�We feel we learned a great deal from the class,� she said, �more so than just reading about safe boating online or in a book.�

Winter is a good time to start to take a safe boating course and Macomb County is home to many this winter and spring.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 20-19 will start a safe boating course that runs through March 11.

And later this winter, a series of safe boating classes will be offered through Macomb County Parks and Recreation, including one starting March 1 and hosted by the Shelby…………… continues on it’s a winter thing – The Macomb Daily

Boat show a safe harbor
News from Sun-Sentinel:

FORT LAUDERDALE ——

It was a wet and windy start Thursday to the 53rd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, but nothing that the boats and boaters assembled there couldn’t handle.

The winds and rain associated with Hurricane Sandy as it spun north into the Bahamas barely affected the boat show, which is being held outdoors at five marinas and inside the Broward County Convention Center through Monday.

There was some standing water at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center and some wet carpets inside the tents there, but that was great for business at the Capt. Harry’s Fishing Supply booth, where Kim Vernon and her crew were selling flip-flops to showgoers wearing their best leather pumps and loafers.

“We were debating even having flip-flops this year,” she said. “We finally decided at the last minute, ‘Let’s bring some.’ We are selling them like crazy. Hats, too.”

Although the weather…………… continues on Sun-Sentinel

Safe Boating Who goes where on the water?

Safe Boating Who goes where on the water?
News from Tampa Bay Newspapers:

By LOREN D. REUTER

Anyone who has operated a boat in this area knows that there is often confusion resulting from boats converging on one another. Unfortunately, many boaters do not have the knowledge or training that allows them to understand who has the right of way on the water.

When boats are converging, one is always the “stand on” vessel and one is the “give way” vessel.

The “stand on” vessel is required to maintain its course and speed unless doing so will result in a collision. Knowing that a boat is the “stand on” boat also allows other “give way” boats the opportunity to predict what and where the “stand on” vessel will do and go, so “give way” boats can adjust their course and speed accordingly.

The “give way” vessel is required to do what is necessary to avoid a collision with the “stand on” vessel.

Knowing which vessel is “stand on” and which is “give way” is essential to be a safe boater, so how does one know which is which? This determination is made by the way every boat is “sectored” into green, red, and white sectors. The sectors are actually easier to identify at night because your boat’s navigation lights establish them, if they are installed and working correctly. It may help you to understand the sectors by walking around your boat at night with its navigation lights on.

The green sector on your boat, as iden…………… continues on Tampa Bay Newspapers

NRP Celebrates National Safe Boating Week

NRP Celebrates National Safe Boating Week
News from Bay Net:

 The Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) and local boat insurance provider, Jack Martin/Avon-Dixon, encourage the public to join them in wearing a lifejacket to work on Friday, May 18. The State initiative kicks off National Safe Boating Week, May 19 to 23, by raising awareness on the importance of these life saving devices.

“The simple act of wearing a lifejacket could mean the difference between life and death during a boating accident,” said NRP Superintendent Colonel George F. Johnson IV. “If we can prevent one fatality on Maryland waterways by reminding the public to wear a lifejacket, we have accomplished our goal.”

By encouraging everyone to wear a lifejacket in a non typical setting, such as at work, NRP hopes to heighten public awareness and foster discussion on the importance of boating safety.

Last year alone, Maryland had 24 boating deaths- nearly double the ten year average of 13. Nationwide, approximately 75 to 80 percent of boating deaths are due to drowning, many of which could have been prevented with the use of a life jacket.

Louisiana offers home safe boating course
News from Shreveport Times:

BATON ROUGE — The new Online Boating Safety Course provided by the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is now approved by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, allowing the state’s boaters to take the course at no cost in the comfort of their own home.

For boat owners, taking the course could also earn a discount on their boat insurance.

“We’ve loaded the course with interactive animations, videos and photos to give boaters, sailors and anglers an education that goes well beyond the basics of boating,” said BoatUS Foundation president Chris Edmonston. “It includes videos that demonstrate important safety devices, such as visual distress signals, how to get help in an emergency, how to prevent and extinguish fires aboard your boat, and the best way to fit a life jacket to a child so they will not slip out. It’s designed so that you can stop and then continue at any time. I will guarantee that everyone will learn something new.”
