Coast Guard: Water dangerously cold – Bangor Daily News

From the Story:

Mariners should prepare every trip on the water by doing the following:

• File a float plan with a friend or relative, telling them where you’re going and when you plan to return.

• Check the weather forecast.

• Ensure there is a working radio on board.

• Ensure your flares aren’t expired.

• Ensure everyone on board is wearing a properly fitted Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device.

• Ensure the boat plug is in place before launching.
