Hi vicker,
When I was out a few weeks back, the boats were checking out with ' mobile ski' I think. Chat to the guys at the slip and listen to the radio.

Use the RSA SafeTRX app that the NSRI developed. I used it last week for the first time. It is very good. I accidentally entered the wrong eta in the app and within 30 min of not logging in my contacts were notified, and NSRI called me. They can track your exact location and movement as long as your phone is on and the app is active

How does that work when theres no reception , no Internet and ur phone s dead? Yeah just leave a float plan with trusted family or friend. And eta, a delayed eta , possible fishing co-ords. And who to phone nsri, club etc. Than you can check in with a kavi or sat phone all day and carry an epirb or plb. Plus a handheld waterproof radio and an independent gps or chartplotter than can easily be transfer from a house battery to an engine battery.

Sign out at the club. Have your go to mechanics number and local nsri. Know your pan pan and mayday procedure and you can always get cape town radio on 16. Buy a local almanac think it channel 12 or 16 I forget, they will give I warning if navy is busy so u dont get shot haha.

And finally check out on vhf if available with cape boat.

Being prepared for everything makes you a safer skipper.
only weigh it when it does not fit in the box

Not sure how it all works but they told me they saw my movement all the way to the ammo dumps and to Kalk bay. When i didn't check in they phoned the first two contacts on my list to check if i was ok. Every person on the list gets an sms as you log your departure. It includes your route, eta, crew, launch and return point. I'll ask them to give us a "Dummies Guide" for the forum.

Good day, my name is Andrew, and we are now running a voluntary, check in/out service for all boats, when you guys run to the deep. We have a set up that can now reach up to 40 miles, and more, off shore, and are maintaining a voluntary listening watch on channel 71, for booking in and out, and for any other safety aspect. We will be soon adding the Kavicom, to our system, and then you will be able to book in/out with that system, as well.
Currently Dave Melly is the operator at 'SKI-BOAT MOBILE' (ztq-430), which is the call sign that we use. This is a Cape Boat and Ski-boat club initiative, with the blessing of western province deep sea angling assoc. ,and fills the gap, left when Geoff died.
All calls are logged.
Dave can be contacted on 0824510382.
I, Andrew am on +447833317632, or on Skype (perrins2), or whatsapp or email ; Andrew.perrins@hotmail.co.uk.
I can answer any queries also here.
