MIAMI (CBSMiami) – There are so many things to do in South Florida including enjoying a day on the water. But it's important to stay safe while boating and having the right equipment on board is key.

CBS4 Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer says that means having a marine GPS which provides your position through a latitude and longitude.
