BUT FIRST, HERE'S A LOOK AT THIS MORNING'S WINNING LOTTERY NUMBERS CBS4 THIS MORNING WILL BE RIGHT BACK

BUT FIRST WITH THE RETURN OF SUMMER-LIKE TEMPERATURES, MORE OF YOU WILL BE HEADED OUT ON THE WATER FOR AT LEAST SOME OF THE WEEKEND AND AS IS PART OF WHY WE'RE REALLY EXCITED TO BRING YOU A NEW SERIES FOR OUTDOOR BEFORE WE GO TO BREAK OUR RESIDENT BOATER CHIEF METEOROLOGIST CRAIG SETZER TAKES YOU OUT ON THE WATER Reporter: JUST LIKE CARS HAVE TRAFFIC SIGNS AND LIGHTS, THERE ARE ALSO RULES OF THE ROAD FOR BOATS LET'S CHECK THEM OUT WHEN DEALING WITH CHANNELS AND MARKERS, IT'S IMPORTANT TO ENTER THE CHANNEL AT THE FIRST MARK

MARK NUMBER ONE IN THIS CASE BECAUSE JUST OUTSIDE OF THE CHANNEL, IT COULD BE VERY, VERY SHALLOW THE CHANNEL MARKERS INDICATE WHERE THE CHANNEL IS THE DEEPEST PART OF THE WATERWAY AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO STAY IN- BETWEEN THE RED AND THE GREEN AND IF YOU GET CONFUSED ABOUT WHICH COLOR GOES WHERE, JUST REMEMBER THIS LITTLE TIP

RED, RIGHT, RETURN LEAVE THE RED MARKS TO YOUR RIGHT WHEN YOU RETURN HOME WHILE MANY HAZARDS TO BOATING ARE MARKED OR LIGHTED AT NIGHT, SOME AREN'T, SO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO KEEP A LOOKOUT FOR WHAT COULD BE OUT THERE WHILE MINIMUM WAKE DOESN'T HAVE ANY SPECIFIC SPEED REQUIREMENTS, YOU NEED TO GO SLOW ENOUGH AS TO NOT CREATE A LARGE WAVE BEHIND THE BOAT IDLE SPEED NO WAKE MEANS YOU HAVE TO GO AS SLOW AS THE BOAT CAN GO

BUT MAINTAIN MANEUVERABILITY IF YOU ARE HEADING OUT INTO THE OCEAN, YOU CAN USE GOVERNMENT CUT AS LONG AS THERE AREN'T TWO OR MORE CRUISE SHIPS IN PORT MIAMI ON THE GOVERNMENT CUT, CRAIG
