A Gale Warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots are imminent or

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 Small Craft Advisory means that hazardous wind and sea
conditions will exist for small craft. Inexperienced
mariners...especially those operating smaller vessels should avoid
navigating in these conditions.
