Safety Tips from Tin Can Bay Boat Hire

 How a boat handles depends on its hull  design and strength as well as the horsepower propelling the vessel.  Wave direction and steering and weight distribution.   Discussing your trip with your hirer for any advice is a great idea for fishing tips as well as safety advice.  Always ensure you have adequate life jackets for everyone on board for safety and peace of mind.  If sudden unpredicted weather catches you unawares, head for the shore or a safe harbour where wind wont cause large waves. Rough weather can usually be avoided on a trip out by ensuring you get good weather forecasts before heading out.  For boat hire, speed boat hire and waterskiing or fishing, contact Tin Can Bay Boat Hire.
