If there is one thing common about mariners, it is the desire to return home safely after a day on the water.
Mariners have responsibility for those inside the boat, those inside other boats and those in the water.
Safety of waterway users is the genesis of this site. This is why you should use Notices to Mariners every time you venture into your waterways.
There are so many hazards in the waterways in which mariners travel. Many of these hazards are hidden.
To keep us safe on the water, government departments issue Notices to Mariners in government gazettes and websites.
It is not always easy to use notices to mariners issued by government departments. They contain all the details of the hazard but are often confusing.
There is something fundamentally wrong with that. These seem to be written more for bureaucratic purposes than to inform mariners.
To use notices to mariners quickly, we just want to know what and where a hazard is so we can avoid it.
