Is anyone able to provide a link to the regulations relating to "must have by law" safety equipment required by Fishing Ski's.

Thanks.

Here they are:
The Marine Safety Act requires a paddle ski to be equipped with a minimum of:
1. An approved buoyancy aide: one per person
2. 750ml drinking water- for vessels going to sea only
3. Unexpired approved projectile flare set – a minimum of 6 required
4. Suitable tow line- of at least 10m
5. Bailing device- for vessels that do not self drain

These are the must have there are many more a
"add-ons" that are just as important.

Malgas

Thanks for the replies. What I would like however is a link to the actual doc from SAMSA. I have been told that the pencil flares are not required for kayak fishing but would like to see the regulations for myself. Anyone?

I have written to SAMSA asking for clarification, I'll keep you posted if they come back to me.

If you look at table on Page 53 it's pretty clear that we require a set of 6 un-expired pencil flares,. The only exception would be sailing boats on sheltered waters Category R. We are category D (and could be E if you have agreed with SAMSA -as in KZN- UKFC members apparently) which means less than 5 Nautical miles offshore and for non-power driven vessels of less than 7m.
