SBMARV2DVD
80 mins.

Includes: Mayday! Mayday!, Boaters Guide to Using Marine Radar

"In the hands of a knowledgeable user, radar is a valuable aid to safe navigation, allowing boaters to "see" through rain, darkness, poor visibility and fog."
A VHF radio is one of the most important tools on board a boat. Like any other tool, however, there are right ways and wrong ways to use it. The quickest way to determine the competence of a boater is not by his docking abilities but by his use of the radio. Although the VHF radio is relatively easy to operate, there are some very important features about the use and operation that all boaters must know. Included are the different VHF channels and their uses along with information on how to monitor the radio. It provides specific, step-by-step instructions on how to place both emergency and non-emergency calls including Mayday Calls, Securite Calls and Pan-Pan Calls. It also teaches what you should do when you hear a Mayday Call including Seelonce Mayday, Seelonce Distress and Mayday Relay.
This set also teaches boaters' what radar is, how it works and how you can get the most from these important navigators. It teaches boaters how alarms can be set, to alert you that targets are entering a particular location or that your own boat is nearing a dangerous area. Radar can also be used to determine your position to back up chart information, electronic aids to navigation and used to navigate to a specific location.
