1 1. Minimum required equipment – required to be aboard by law  Required varies depending on the type and size of vessel  SBG pg covers every type of pleasure craft from a paddleboat to 80 footers  Transport Canada divides the equipment into five sections 2. Recommended Safety Equipment – better equipped to deal with other situations Advantage Boating, 20111

2  Lifejacket or PFD per person  Buoyant Heaving Line  Lifebuoy with buoyant line  Lifebuoy with self-igniting light and/or buoyant line  Re-boarding device Advantage Boating, 20112

3  PFDs  More comfortable to wear  Wider range of colours and styles  Will assist you in the water – does not turn you on your back  Lifejackets  Bulky to wear  Only come in three colours – red, orange and yellow  Will roll you face up  3 different levels of approved jackets (SBG pg 33) Advantage Boating,

4  16 yrs and older  Heavier than 36.3 kg (80lbs)  Not on PWCs  Not for white water paddling activities  You have to be wearing an inflatable PFD for it to be counted as “approved” on an open boat.  If the boat is not open then you only need to wear it while you’re on deck. Advantage Boating,

5  Heaving Line  A minimum of 15m for all vessels  Lifebuoy/Ringbuoy  Must be at least 610 mm in diameter  Must have a heaving line attached of the minimum required length! Advantage Boating,

6  Re-boarding device  Required when your vessel has over 0.5 m of freeboard  Definition of Freeboard The measurement from the waterline to deck level. Advantage Boating, 20116

7  Manual propelling device  Bailer or manual bilge pump  Manual Bilge Pump – must reach the bilge and then overboard  Required for all boat types  Anchor with rode attached  Length of rode depends on the size of the vessel Advantage Boating,

8  Watertight flashlight  Flares  Vessel length & area of navigation determines the required number: 3 or 6 or 12  Good for 4 yrs. from date of manufacture  4 Types (SBG pg 38)  Before using read the instructions  Storage – vertically, cool & dry Advantage Boating,

9  Sound Signal  Magnetic Compass  Radar Reflector  At least 4m above the vessel waterline  Navigation Lights Advantage Boating, 20119

10  Lights On  From Sunset to Sunrise  And/or at times of restricted visibility  Light Types  Side lights – Port & Starboard (112.5 degree)  Masthead (forward facing 225 degree)  Stern (aft facing 135 degrees)  All-Round (360 degrees) Advantage Boating,

11 Advantage Boating, A pleasure craft less than 50m at anchor. The black ball is known as a “dayshape”

12 Advantage Boating, Should be shown on the approach of other vessels. A kayaker at night should use a white strobe light.

13 Advantage Boating, Power- driven vessel underway - less than 50 meters in length.

14 Advantage Boating, Power driven vessel – under 12 m -can use a single all-round light instead of the stern & masthead combination

15 Advantage Boating, Different patters for a 10m vessel under sail. Most common pattern is the large one in the middle

16 Advantage Boating, Power-driven vessel towing astern ; Towing vessel less than 50 m in length; Length of tow exceeds 200 meters. Power-driven vessel towing astern; Towing vessel less than 50 m in length; Length of tow 200 meters or less. The difference is the number of the masthead lights 3 vs. 2

17 Advantage Boating, Memory Aid – Red over White fishing at night.

18  # BC Fire extinguisher  # = the required size either a 5 or a 10 depending on vessel size  BC = the fires fuel source type (A, B, C)  Number onboard dependent on the number of sources  Care – shake it often!  Axe  Break open hatch ways  Cut loose a sinking boat under tow  Buckets Advantage Boating,

19 Recommended additional safety equipment a)tool kitb) binoculars c)chartsd) plotting tools (ruler, dividers, pencil) e)safety harnessf) sunscreen g)first aid kith) food & water i) blanket j) knife k) waterproof matchesm) backup steering device n) extra lineo) VHF radio Advantage Boating,

20 What might need to be aboard l Local Area charts l Notice to Mariners (NoTMar) l Used to keep charts currrent l Chart One l Tide & Current Tables Published by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) If no CHS charts of the boating area is available – at least use a topographical map Advantage Boating,
