For a longer trip, unless you have a definite schedule, I don't think filing a float plan really makes much sense. Personally, I think having a schedule of checking in with a friend or family member would make more sense. Weather, mechanical problems, and such can all cause your plans to change making a float plan less than useful.


Shorter trips, like weekend or day trips, it would probably make sense to have a float plan filed. Weather and mechanical problems, as well as changes of itinerary are far less likely to affect your schedule on a trip of such a scale.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
