Coastguard has launched a promotional campaign aimed at encouraging boaties to prepare well before returning to the water under Level 2.
NZ Marine has shared this message on our website and Facebook page to spread the message to boaties NZ-wide. This helpful checklist will ensure even the most seasoned boaties are well prepared before they hit the boat ramp or slip out of the marina.
NZ Marine’s to message to boaties via our website and Facebook is that if, whilst going through this checklist, you realise something needs fixing, replacing or your engine needs servicing, contact one of their NZ Marine member companies for assistance.
A comprehensive list of boat dealers, marine mechanics, marine electricians, marine engineers, chandlery stores, etc can be found at www.nzmarine.com/directory.
It’s exciting to plan for that first trip back out on the water but make sure you have everything in order so you can enjoy that long-awaited fishing trip with family and friends and get home again safely.
