Skippers Certificate | How to Not Forget Necessities

skippers certificate

Going on a boating trip real soon? Before you let your excitement get the better of you, it is important to make sure you have all the necessities on board. These items include your skippers certificate, first aid kits, maintenance toolkits, maps, and so much more. However, there will be times when you still miss the important stuff. This can undoubtedly cause you or your passengers’ trouble when the need for them arises.

How can you help yourself when it comes to remembering things to bring? Here are some simple tips on how you can make sure your things are in place.


Tips on Remembering Boating Essentials


Create a checklist

The first thing you should do is to list down everything that needs to be bought for your boating trip. You can try just writing everything that comes to your mind. Worry about its organization after accomplishing a full list of the things to bring.

When reorganizing the list, make sure to arrange them by importance. For example, you can put your skippers certificate on top of the list, since it is mandated by the law. The rest will follow according to your discretion.

Prepare dry folders or containers for your items

After completing your checklist, you can now prepare everything in advance. Make sure that items that belong together are in the same folder/container. For example, put the supporting documents, such as skippers certificate or mastery certificate, for your boating in the same folder or envelope. This way, they are all easily accessible and protected. It can reduce the risk of misplacing important documents.

You should also take dryness into consideration. If you can, invest in waterproof bags and containers. Do not risk the state of your belongings, since you will be in the middle of the water. You can also wrap them in plastic to avoid water from entering or splashing them.

Double check everything, especially your skippers certificate

On the day of the trip, pull out your checklist and go through everything again. Make sure everything is in their places. But the most important of all, make sure your skippers certificate is there! We cannot emphasize enough how inconvenient it would be to leave it behind.

Once everything is set, you can now enjoy a worry-free boating trip with your family! Do not let forgetting things ruin your boating trip. We came up to this article to help you enjoy your trip.
