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 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
ENTER 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.
