All recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties on the wa­ter be un­der­taken with the wear­ing of per­sonal floata­tion de­vices ac­ti­vated on con­tact with wa­ter.

Where recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties are un­der­taken in con­di­tions where EPIRBs are used, those EPIRBs in­clude a wa­ter ac­ti­vated de­vice, which is lo­cated ex­ter­nally to the cabin and does not re­quire man­ual ac­ti­va­tion.

Those in­tend­ing to fish recre­ation­ally offshore should no­tify the lo­cal ma­rine vol­un­teer search and res­cue group, or at least friends and fam­ily, of their in­tended route, and of changes di­rected by weather con­di­tions where pos­si­ble.
