  1. Bluewater Sailing Club Winter Seminar Series “Preparing Your Boat to Go Offshore” Cruising By Greg Flederman

  2. ChecklistsRigging & SailsNavigation & RoutingElectrics & ElectronicsUpgrades SAFETY

  3. Checklists • Systems Checklist • Delivery Checklist • Pre-departure Checklist • Post Departure Checklist

  4. SystemsChecklist • Exterior • Bilge • Batteries • AC power • Engines and Generators • Electronics • Navigation lights • Interior lights

  5. Delivery Checklist • Hull • Sails & Rigging • Nav Lights & Shapes • Safety • Engine & Electrical • Tools • Charts & Navigation • Paperwork • Spares • Recommended Items

  6. Rigging and sails: • Rigging • Cruising rigs are often neglected • Rig check by a recognized rigging specialist • Less work, peace of mind, insurance value. • Sails • Sails inspected and repaired • Additional reefing points • Roller furling Genoa Luff pad • Tri sail and storm jib • Repair/replace running rigging as needed

  7. Navigation and Routing Navigation • Basic navigation including finding and plotting position, maintaining a log , basic dead reckoning plot. • Paper charts for entire area of cruise including Charts for safe harbors along the route. • Maintain library of navigational books including Bowditch, Reeds Almanac, and others pertaining to cruising grounds. • Celestial navigation Routing • Weather windows • Commander's weather • Seasonal considerations

  8. Electrics and Electronics Electrics • Supply - Wind, solar, generator, engine alternator • Storage - Battery banks, Chargers and Inverters • Demand - Decrease usage -LED's, dimmers, and foot pumps Electronics • GPS, DSC VHF-radio, AIS and Radar • EPIRB's, PLB'S and MSLD's

  9. DSC enabled VHF radio Stand alone DSC radio with dedicated GPS DSC radio with GPS data input from Chartplotter

  10. AIS – Automated Information System Standalone installation

  11. Radar • No real breakthroughs that affect offshore sailing. • High definition and broadband radar. EPIRB’s • Electronic position indicating radio beacon • Now include GPS connectivity and or integration

  12. PLB’s Personal Locator Beacons • Three main types - EPIRB, EPIRB with GPS, GPS • Spot - 406 MHZ with GPS and Globalstarmessaging, SAR by company • ACR mini B -121.5 MHZ and 406 MHZ, non GPS, SAR by USCG/AMVER • McMurdo - 121.5 MHZ and 406 MHZ, GPS, AMVER SAR • ACR Aqualink - 121.5 MHZ and 406 MHZ and 406 link, with I'm OK and Aquaview LED test function, AMVER SAR

  13. MSLD’s Marine Survivor Location Devices • SeaMarshall - base unit and PLB, extensive commercial use • Mobilert- transmitter activated by water, generates GPS tag • Firstlight Mermaid ID - base, thru hull and ID -pods, water activated, generates GPS tag • Emerald marine alert 2 - As above with optional R.D.F kit • RaymarineLifetag - tag activated by distance, sounds Seatalkalarm, records position and creates mob target on all Seatalkdevices, lowers range on chartplottersand radars to optimum for MOB/SAR, up two 16 tags per base station.

  14. Upgrades • Electrics • Electronics • Tankage • Water maker • Wind vane • Life raft • Foul weather gear
