Creating a master copy

Creating a master copy for each vessel you own (boat, Jet Ski, etc.) will save you a significant amount of time when you're ready to take your next voyage.  To create a master copy do the following:

  • Fill out the "Vessel" section of the float plan.
  • FIll out those items in the "Safety & Survival" section you normally keep onboard.
  • Fill out your name and address information in the Operator" portion of the "Persons Onboard" section.
  • Fill out the tow or transport vehicle information.
  • Save your work.

Name your master copy after the type of vessel you own i.e. Boat, Jetski, Kayak, etc.  For example:

  • BoatFloatplan-MASTER.pdf
  • JetskiFloatplan-MASTER.pdf.
  • KayakFloatplan-MASTER.pdf.
  • CanoeFloatplan-MASTER.pdf.
  • PontoonFloatplan-MASTER.pdf

Each master serves as a basis to make a copy from, for future voyages, with that specific vessel.  It is important to note that when you sell a vessel, be sure to delete the master.

Now you're ready to prepare a float plan for your next voyage.
