Mayday/Dead In The Water

 
 
Red Alert/Mayday
Mayday is a red alert requiring immediate assistance and is not a substitute for calling the USCG on channel 16. Pushing the mayday alert will send a push notification to everyone on the app that you need immediate help. If they can help you, they can call you on channel 16, call or text you on your cell phone. Possibly a Lokahi Fishing App member can get to you more quickly than a coast guard cutter.
Yellow Alert/Dead in the Water
Being Dead in the Water is a yellow alert that doesn’t require immediate assistance usually because of the lost of power or steering capability. Pushing the yellow alert will send a push notification to everyone of the app that you are dead in the water. You should monitor VHF channel 71 and CB channel 16 because a member will try to contact you on those channels or by calling/texting on your cell. Possibly a Lokahi Fishing App member can help you with fuel, fuel filter or tow you in to your home port.
