Motor yachts, as mentioned in the name, are large recreational boats with one or more engines for primary pushing. There is no…Devamı
Safety should be a priority for small boats with an outboard engine. Inflatable boats with very fast navigational capabilities may not be as safe as they think, as they are lightweight and can easily fit high-horse power engines on their asses. Being very close to the sea and going up to speeds of 30-35 knots necessitates security measures.
Such boats are highly affected by small waves. They can jump too hard, resulting in throwing inexperienced users overboard. Some of our sailing referee friends, which we consider to be quite experienced in Turkey, had fallen into the sea from the boats several times. Moreover, since security measures were not taken, the boats posed a danger at sea like mad veals without users.
In fact, a friend of ours in charge of the boathouse, who was an experienced sailor in a sailing club, died because he wanted to block a boat that was left unattended. Unfortunately, we don't realize soon enough to wait for lessons after bad events.
As shown in the photo above, the safety cord should be fixed to the wrist, foot or body after being attached to the visible place.
The small outboard motor boats all have safety cords. This cord must be connected to the user. If the user falls into the sea somehow, the cord will dislodge and cut the circuit and stop the boat. Otherwise, the boat is left unattended.
Therefore, do not forget to use the safety cable in question for all marine vessels with outboard motors, and do not endanger the lives of others first and then.
