File a Float Plan
It is always a good idea to use the U.S. Coast Guard Float Plan that describes the details of your planned outing. So, It contains the who, what, where, when and how of your outing or trip.
Simply fill out the form before heading out on the water, print it, and leave it with a person who can be depended upon to notify the local police, sheriff, Coast Guard station or other rescue organization, should you not return as scheduled. (Do not file this plan with the Coast Guard.) The information provided is considered the “minimum” information needed when filling out a float plan. Consider utilizing the back side(s) of these forms to provide as much detailed information as possible to ensure complete information is on hand in the event you should have a mishap.
