All vessels operating under the auspices of Hopkins Marine Station must, at the minimum, be in compliance with local, state and USCG regulations. File this float plan (OR THE PDF version, you will have to save to your computer before you can fill it in.) with your shore contact. If your trip is expected to extend beyond the estimated return time, notify your shore contact. Remember to close out your float plan (notify your shore contact) upon return to slip or ramp.
NOTE: If the skipper or the shore contact are NOT Stanford email addresses, this form may never get to them. Please send the shore contact the link to this page in a separate email telling them to check the RESULTS tab to see all the details you are recording below. ALL OF THIS IS FOR YOUR SAFETY. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.
