PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that seas of 5 ft
or higher are expected or occurring, and are hazardous to small
craft. Mariners should avoid shoaling areas. Long period swells
can sharpen into large breaking waves in shoaling areas. It is
not unusual for waves to break much farther from shoaling areas
than is normally experienced. Remember that breaking waves can
easily capsize even larger vessels.
