Watch speed on the water Smooth waters: Boaties should watch their speed, wake and watch out to have a safe summer. Sticking to a safe speed, watching your wake and keeping a careful lookout are among the top boat- ing tips to ensure a safe summer on the water, Maritime New Zealand says. Regional harbourmas- ters are working with MNZ to remind all boaties that their safety on the water this holiday season lies in each other's hands. There is a maritime tradition that boaties help each other when something goes wrong on the water, but this sup- port needs to carry into all behaviour on the water,'' MNZ manager of recreational and small crafts Jim Lott says. This means following a few commonsense simple rules on the water to ensure everyone enjoys a safe summer -- and these aren't rocket science. Harbourmasters agree that safe speed is one of the most import- ant safety rules for small vessels, but also one of the hardest to enforce,'' Mr Lott says. More complaints are received about speed and excessive wake than any other issue. Slow down, enjoy the trip more and save fuel.'' Experience shows that if a marked harb- ourmaster or maritime police is on patrol, boaties comply with speed requirements, but if caught by an unmarked patrol boat, many profess not to understand the speed rules. High speeds create a wake which rolls other boats around, causing discomfort and potential injuries to those onboard. Always look behind to check whether your wake is causing a problem to others.'' Mr Lott says the five by five'' method is the easiest way to remember your safe speed obligations. There are five situations when you are required to slow your speed to 5 knots or 9kmh -- a fast walking pace. These include when you are within 200 metres of the shore, within 50 metres of another watercraft, within 50 metres of a swimmer, within 200 metres of a dive flag, when any passengers are bow riding. There are also a num- ber of other important but simple rules to ensure safe and trouble- free boating,'' Mr Lott says. This includes follow- ing basic rules on the water, which include keeping to the right of oncoming boats and maintaining a careful lookout at all times. Before you go out, also make sure you check the weather -- and when on the water, wear your lifejacket, carry at least two forms of reliable communications, and avoid alcohol.''
