...GALE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS EVENING...
...HEAVY FREEZING SPRAY WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM EST
THIS AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...For the Heavy Freezing Spray Warning, heavy freezing
  spray at a rate of 2 cm per hour or greater may rapidly
  accumulate on vessels. For the Gale Warning, northwest winds
  20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 45 kt and seas 1 to 4 ft.

* WHERE...Casco Bay.

* WHEN...For the Heavy Freezing Spray Warning, until 1 PM EST
  this afternoon. For the Gale Warning, until 7 PM EST this
  evening.

* IMPACTS...Operating a vessel in heavy freezing spray is
  hazardous. Freezing spray may render mechanical and electronic
  components inoperative. Rapid ice accretion on decks and
  superstructures may result in a catastrophic loss of
  stability. Strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could
  capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners should prepare for dangerous accumulation of ice on
their vessel. If possible, remain in port, avoid the warning area
or conduct mitigation. During freezing spray conditions the U.S.
Coast Guard advises that you ensure all lifesaving equipment
remains free of ice.

Mariners should alter plans to avoid these hazardous conditions.
Remain in port, seek safe harbor, alter course, and/or secure the
vessel for severe conditions.
