In July I'll be going to Fripp Island, near Hilton Head Island,SC. I plan on taking my 07 FX Cruiser HO. I have never ridden in the ocean and this area seems to have many sounds, canals, inlets, etc. As opposed to lake riding what safety equipment would you recommend for this area? I dont plan to go far offshore, just basically cruising up and down the coast area. I don't yet have a GPS or handheld marine radio but I assume these would be highly recommended. I have a good vest in the Force Six Instructor model but how about goggles vs glasses, flares, and things like this. I may have a friend with a boat traveling with me on one day but mostly it will be me solo or with a passenger. Thanks.
