    FWC says anchor in the water and you will be safe . the range on my ski is 200 mile one way. the bad thing is trying to fined a ramp to put your boat in the water.

    Ron... do you have any boating experience ?

    If not... I suggest you attend the Coast Guard school before your endeavors.

    The water on a beach is one thing... going offshore to areas is a WHOLE other thing.

    I know its sounds easy to just "hop a watercraft and head out to new places"...

    but there are some logistics AND laws that you should be aware of.

    Not to mention... when out in the water there is always an inherent danger ever present even to the experienced.

    MAny factors exist out there... from weather to collisions with everything from other boats to underwater debri's.

    Knowledge is key to being a safe boater... and the CGS is a small class that will teach you the basicsand the "rules of the water roads"... and I highly recommend it.

    For one...

    Do you know that you MUST leave a "detailed plan" in your windshield of your vehicle before embarking alone ?

    when alone things can be very "tricky".

    Please take heed.
