PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR HAZARDOUS SEAS MEANS THAT WAVES ARE  
EXPECTED TO BE HAZARDOUS TO SMALL CRAFT. MARINERS SHOULD AVOID  
SHOALING AREAS. LONG PERIOD SWELL 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, BREAKING WAVES CAN EASILY CAPSIZE EVEN LARGER VESSELS.
