Safety at sea for small fishing boats and other craft
MetadataShow full item record
This article outlines some actions that boat owners may undertake to ensure that the emergency rescue provisions are available wherever they are called upon. The required actions affecting inshore small-scale fishing vessels and other craft fall into 3 main categories, the first being unforeseen changes in weather conditions and the need for good design. The second concerns the deterioration of the vessel through natural exposure to salt and sunlight attack on the vessle and the gear it carries. The third covers the necessity for additional equipment to be carried to offset danger and to attract attention to a boat in difficulties.
