When heading out on the water, one way of ensuring you have what you need for safety is a checklist.

Discover Boating has a printable <a href="" target="_blank">Pre-departure Checklist</a>.

Filing a float plan with someone ashore is a safety feature when out on the water. It should include names and contact information for everyone on board, your destination(s) and time you will return
to shore.&nbsp; Be sure you close your sail plan on return by checking in with your onshore contact.
