Deckee, the popular Australian boating companion app endorsed by government agencies, has launched a new initiative called ‘Prepare’ to improve public safety on waterways and help boaters avoid fines.

The free mobile app tool enables boaters to easily determine the mandatory safety equipment required, based on their specific watercraft and intended location.

Understanding safety regulations can be complex and confusing, varying significantly based on the type of watercraft operated, and the state and specific location it is operated in. This can lead to penalties for missing required items. Deckee’s Prepare tool allows users to select a location on the water and see a comprehensive list of necessary safety gear, including lifejackets, distress flares, and fire extinguishers. Hailed as a game-changer in maritime safety, the app is an indispensable tool, allowing Australian boaters to easily plan, prepare, and enjoy their water activities safely. Deckee is available for free via the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
