Boating Season Troubles...

Just like Seattle drivers who have to "learn again" to drive on rainy roads every time it rains here - mariners during early boating season adventures have a similar issue with capsizing small craft - just remember that term "reserve buoyancy"

Reserve Buoyancy

–noun Nautical.

The difference between the volume of a hull below the designed waterline and the volume of the hull below the lowest opening incapable of being made watertight.

Origin: 1900–05

So basically, you're telling the owners of small craft to try not to sink if possible. Sounds like a pretty good idea to me! ;)
