    BoatUS remains the premiere advocate for boaters’ safety and we are proud to have them as SPONSORS!

    VHF radio technology has greatly improved, but do boaters know how to properly use the newest models of DSC VHF radios?

    New Online Course for Boaters: All About Marine Radio

    ANNAPOLIS, MD, July 6, 2015 – If you put 10 boaters in a room with a working marine VHF radio, how many could call for help, call a friend, or share a navigational hazard with nearby boaters? Chances are the most important piece of safety gear aboard a boat is the least understood. A partnership with the US Power Squadrons and BoatUS Foundation aims to improve boaters’ knowledge with the new online course, All About Marine Radio, offered at The course shows how to use standard VHF radios as well as newer Digital Selective Calling (DSC) VHF radios and is great for novices and experienced boaters. Taken from the comfort of home, the course is $24.95.

    “From calling a mayday to requesting a marina slip, it’s the boater’s VHF radio that is the most reliable way to communicate and it is the only piece of equipment that can get those closest to a boat in distress to respond quickly,” said BoatUS Foundation Director of Education Amanda Suttles Pérez.

    All About Marine Radio teaches how to choose the best radio for your boating lifestyle and how to get the most use out of it. The online course will show some simple rules to follow when you’re using a marine VHF radio plus how to:

    Determine which features you want in a marine radio for your type of boating
    Make and receive radio calls, including what channels to use
    Obtain and use an Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number for your boat
    Call for help in all kinds of emergencies
    Ensure that your transmissions are understandable
    Simple rules to follow when using your radio
    Joining BoatUS for $24 annually lowers the course’s price to $19.96 – the same price offered to US Power Squadrons, Canadian Power Squadrons, US Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Great Lakes Cruising Club members. More information on BoatUS membership benefits can be found at

  • VIDEO: Danger near PIGS in Staniel Cay, Exumas

    Our thanks to Skipper Norman Quinn for sending this video and this warning: DO NOT FEED THE PIGS!

    Our friends Vern and Rose on M/V Roamalot reported a serious accident at Pig Beach on Big Major Cay in the Exumas. While feeding the pigs, one of the largest pigs attacked and bit Rose pulling her right out of their dingy and nearly severing her thumb from her hand. She flew back to a Fort Lauderdale hospital where she underwent emergency hand surgery to repair three breaks and severed tendons in her thumb. Just a word of warning to cruisers in the Staniel Cay area…do not feed the pigs, especially in shallow water where they can jump into the boat and attack.

  • Shorebirds and Fireworks Don’t Mix!

    Have a heart! Let them live!

    Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission
    Personal fireworks don’t mix with nesting shorebirds

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) asks the public to help protect beach-nesting shorebirds across the state this holiday weekend by giving them space and keeping personal fireworks off the beach.

    Shorebirds are nesting on beaches along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida, with many still watching over flightless chicks during the busy Independence Day weekend. The snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oystercatcher and Wilson’s plover are several of the state’s beach-nesting shorebird species that face conservation challenges and need people’s help to survive.

    “Fireworks launched too close or toward a nesting colony can cause adult shorebirds to flush off their nests and chicks to scatter, leaving the chicks vulnerable to predators, the elements and the potential of getting accidentally stepped on by beach-goers,” said Nancy Douglass, who works on shorebird conservation for the FWC. “Leaving personal fireworks at home and giving the birds space are ways that residents can still enjoy the beach while helping to keep shorebirds and their chicks safe.”

    Ways to protect beach-nesting shorebirds this holiday weekend and beyond:

    Leave personal fireworks, including sparklers, at home and attend an official fireworks display instead.
    Keep your distance, whether on the beach or paddling watercraft along the shore. If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A general rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Birds calling out loudly or divebombing are giving signals for you to back off.
    Never intentionally force birds to fly or run. They use up energy they need for nesting, and eggs or chicks may be left vulnerable to the sun’s heat or predators. Teach children not to chase shorebirds and kindly ask fellow beach-goers to do the same.
    Respect posted shorebird nesting areas. Avoid posted sites and use designated walkways when possible.
    It is best not to take pets to the beach, but if you do, keep them on a leash and avoid shorebird nesting areas.
    Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife. Food scraps attract predators such as raccoons and crows, which can prey on shorebird chicks. Litter on beaches can entangle birds and other wildlife.
    Spread the word. If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently let them know how their actions may hurt the birds’ chances for survival. If they continue to disturb nesting shorebirds, report their activities to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone, or by texting
    For more ways to share the beach with nesting shorebirds, go to and download the “Share the Beach with Beach-Nesting Birds” brochure. Additional information can also be found at the Florida Shorebird Alliance website:

    Boaters Find Newest Portable Outboard Fuel Tanks Not All They’re Cracked Up to Be:

    Installing Fuel-Demand Valve Wise Move

    BoatUS Video Shows You How

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 30, 2015 – Owners with outboard powered boats have lived with portable fuel tanks for years, but recent well-intentioned efforts to stop smog-causing gas fumes from escaping by eliminating the familiar two-way vent is causing new concerns. Without a vent – typically a small screw type fixture on the tank’s cap or top – a portable tank can swell up like a balloon in the hot sun with the internal pressure forcing gas into the outboard where it can spew inside the cowling, eventually dribbling out. It’s a wise move to install an inexpensive fuel-demand valve in the fuel line that will prevent any gas from reaching the motor unless the motor calls for it, and BoatUS has a video and easy to follow instructions to show you how.

    “Our members are telling us that the new tanks aren’t all they are cracked up to be,” said BoatUS Magazine Executive Editor Mike Vatalaro. “These new EPA compliant portable tanks and jerry jugs have special fittings that greatly reduce evaporative emissions from gasoline. But where traditional tanks simply vent to the atmosphere, the new tanks won’t vent until the internal pressure reaches five pounds per square inch. In the meantime, fuel could be forced up the fuel line into the outboard, many of which have no means to hold it back.”

    “Leaving the tank disconnected just results in the same gush of gas once you do hook it up, either from the tank end or through the engine,” added Vatalaro. “Installing an inexpensive fuel-demand valve in the fuel line will prevent any gas from reaching the motor unless the motor calls for it.” The video and instructions can be found at:

    The video was done in partnership with the American Boat & Yacht Council ( and is part of BoatUS Magazine’s Practical Boater series that offers skills building, techniques and best practices to get the most out of boating.

    Elizabeth City to Host Historic Chesapeake Buyboats Tour, Aug. 5-7

    For the past decade, members of the Chesapeake Buyboat Association have taken its fleet of historic fishing boats to the water in an annual reunion tour, with stops at selected ports of call that connect to the Chesapeake Bay. Elizabeth City will be a featured stop on this year’s 11th annual tour, Aug. 5-7, offering the public a rare chance to view 10 of the historic boats and learn about their origin. The graceful wooden vessels, also known as deck or oyster boats, were prevalent in the Chesapeake Bay and North Carolina sounds in the early-to-mid 20th century. Providing a time-saving service between the oyster fisherman and the processing houses, buyboat owners cruised to where the fisherman worked on the water, loaded their boats with the freshly-caught bivalves and headed directly to the shucking houses to drop off that day’s catch. This year’s reunion tour will begin in Poquoson, Va., and make its way to Elizabeth City via the historic Dismal Swamp Canal. The boats will be docked along the downtown waterfront at Mariners’ Wharf, Aug. 5-7, and open to the public to view on Thursday, Aug. 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
