Find advice on all aspects of kayaking and using small boats on big water

911, coast guard, police dept.??

Which agency is the appropriate one to list on a "Kayak Float Plan" for the "who to call if I'm not back by...." for the Seattle area???? I couldn't find this listed on any of the kayak club or retail dealer websites.

I'm going to make a more concerted effort to leave a sheet filled out for my wife everytime I paddle since there are several areas close by for me to choose from and I don't always communicate my plans very well...."I'm going paddling for a couple of hours". Not very fair to the search and rescue personel should something unexpected happen.

I just printed out the form on the Sea Kayaker mag. website. Link below.

Thanks, Ben Staley
