experience and properly equipped vessels. It is highly
recommended that mariners without the proper experience seek safe
Harbor prior to the onset of gale conditions.

A freezing spray advisory means that light to moderate
accumulation of ice is expected on vessels. Operating a vessel in
freezing spray can be hazardous. It is recommended that vessels
be prepared to take appropriate counter measures before putting
to sea or entering the advisory area. Mariners are urged to
ensure their life saving equipment remains free of ice and that
their fire fighting capabilities are not impacted due to adverse
weather conditions.
