TSV Director of Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, said that boaters must take a safety first approach when fishing in the bay.
...
"We also strongly advise boaters not to anchor or drift in the high shipping hazard zone in Port Phillip Bay (from Hovell Pile in the south of the bay to the Transit Only Zone in the north of the bay) or any other port waters," Mr Corcoran said.
A transit only zone in Port Phillip Bay extends from Point Gellibrand (Williamstown) south to an imaginary line at latitude 38° south.
Mr Corcoran said that TSV and other maritime enforcement agencies are patrolling the bay and cracking down on boaters who anchor in shipping lanes.
"Anchoring in shipping channels is against the law and TSV officers and Water Police are targeting boaters who do the wrong thing," Mr Corcoran said.

Peter Corcoran, Director, Maritime Safety, said the Coroner's finding supports the regulator's committed approach to improving paddling safety and emphasises the need for retailers to play a more active role in educating their customers.
...
"We expect the retailers to contribute to paddling safety by providing information about lifejacket wearing and safety equipment requirements," Mr Corcoran said.
Mr Corcoran has reminded paddlers that it is a legal requirement that they wear a lifejacket at all times when underway.
"This tragedy serves as a reminder to all kayakers and canoeists to always wear an approved lifejacket when they are out on the water," Mr Corcoran said.
...
TSV's Director, Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, is advising boaters to rethink any plans to head out on the water until the warnings have been cancelled.
"With strong winds and very large sea conditions forecast, boaters should not expose themselves or their passengers to risk. It's just not worth it.
"Boaters should always check the weather before heading out and keep in mind that conditions can change suddenly and without warning," Mr Corcoran said.
...
TSV's Director, Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, has pleaded with boaters to avoid becoming another incident statistic and take safety precautions before heading out.
...
"Before heading out you should always undertake a thorough assessment of your boat for its intended operation and always remember to tell someone where you will launch from, where you are going and when you expect to return," Mr Corcoran said.
...
They cannot change course quickly, they do not have brakes and they will travel a long distance before stopping," Mr Corcoran said.
...
"Ships can also weigh over 100,000 tonnes and do not have brakes - they cannot stop or change course and will travel a long distance before stopping," Mr Corcoran said.
Recreational boaters are also being reminded by TSV to take heed of transit only zones, which are regulated areas of water in the vicinity of a commercial shipping channel or fairway.
"Small boat operators must not anchor, moor, drift or engage in fishing activities within a transit only zone," Mr Corcoran said.
...
TSV's Director of Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, said boaters should take time out to ensure they are well equipped to deal with any safety risks which may arise.

Peter Corcoran, Director of Maritime Safety at Transport Safety Victoria (TSV), is urging kayakers to adopt a safety first approach and take more care out on the water.
...
"Kayaks can be unstable and capsizing is always a risk," Mr Corcoran said. "In the colder months, the temperature in Victorian waters can fall below 10 degrees Celsius.
"Hypothermia can occur after prolonged exposure to cold but the effects of cold water immersion or 'cold shock' can have an immediate impact when the person enters the water.
"My message to kayakers is simple," Mr Corcoran emphasised.
...
"If you are heading out into coastal waters, we strongly advise kayakers to have an emergency position indicating radio beacon which can pinpoint your location in an emergency," Mr Corcoran said.

TSV's Director of Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, said hunters should always wear their life jacket and not wear waders in their boat.
"If the vessel capsizes, waders fill up with water quickly, which limits mobility, and are hard to remove," Mr Corcoran said.
Above average rainfall and floods in the past two years has meant that many inland waterways and wetlands are now accessible to boating. Debris has been washed into waterways, increasing the risks of colliding with submerged objects, such as logs, and capsizing because of strong currents.
"Hunters should remain alert to hazards when boating on flood affected waterways," Mr Corcoran added.
...
"Boating safety must be a top priority for all hunters out on the water," Mr Corcoran said.
...
TSV's Director of Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, said refuelling is a potentially hazardous part of boating and it is important to take care and to follow the correct procedures.
"Fuel fires spread very quickly, so it is important that you have fire protection equipment readily available," Mr Corcoran said.
...
TSV's Director of Maritime Safety, Mr Peter Corcoran, said with the approaching warmer weather increasing numbers of kayakers will head out on the water.
"Kayakers need to refresh their knowledge of important safety procedures and be aware of the risks they face.
"Kayaks are more susceptible to the impact of wave and weather conditions and can easily capsize," Mr Corcoran said.
