It is a known fact that the environment at sea is quite different from that on land. People at sea often have to deal with a number of issues which include:
Change in Temperature
The temperature at sea is usually lower than that on land by about 10 degrees. Those going to the sea are usually advised to wear clothing in layers so that it becomes easier for them to adapt by removing a layer when it is hotter, and adding one back on when it is colder. This scenario can be hard to comprehend by people who have never been at the sea, but those who have an experience with sea temperatures, such as sailors, seldom have a problem.
Massive air currents
While on land, there are a number of tall buildings and trees that serve as wind breakers, the sea is plain and vast and therefore, you will often face strong air currents. People are usually advised to wear wind shields and to go roving only when the sea is calm.
Exposure to harmful rays
Most people who go roving at the sea do it for a number of hours that can be damaging to their skin. This happens through the infiltration of the UVA and the UVB rays. Those intending to stay longer at sea are usually advised to carry sunglasses and SPF 30 cream.
Even with these precautions, there are certain kinds of safety that can only be provided by the manufacturers. Knowing these can enable one to carefully choose brands that have shown consistent quality in boat design. Some of the safety features to consider: the stability of the boat under heavy currents, systems that ensure visibility of other boats, well tested and working systems, insulation from the water, quality material and engines with sufficient power to drive the boats. After all the core safety requirements are met, one can consider other needs like a UV protective canvas, and a crane among others. These needs depend on what one want to use the boat for.
