Boaters warned of dangerous conditions for most of NSW Coast
Tue, 2 Apr 2013
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has issued an alert following a Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) warning about dangerous surf conditions from the Victorian border to Coffs Harbour tomorrow and between Ulladulla and the Queensland border on Thursday.
Skippers and owners of small craft should be on high alert and check the conditions before considering crossing a coastal bar or heading offshore.
Rock fishers should also check weather forecasts before heading out to decide whether it is safe to fish near dangerous surf.
Strong winds can also cause dangerous conditions for vessels on moorings which have been poorly maintained.
Every skipper is responsible for the safety of their vessel and all on board. RMS advises skippers to: • Check the official weather forecast before and during boating • Ensure the boat and its equipment is suitable for the conditions • Log on/off with a Marine Rescue NSW marine radio base for every trip offshore • Wear a lifejacket.
