You are planning to go boating in cold water conditions How should you equip your boat in order to be prepared for cold water immersion?

This depends on the size of your vessel and the waters you are operating. A good starting point is to wear as little or NO cotton clothing as possible. Cotton is an evil thing when you enter the water. Wearing a polypropylene undergarments such as "Under Armor" is safer. You want to preserve body heat and wick the water from your skin. If you have the money to invest in a dry suit or immersion suit, that would be a great option, however they are out of the price range and practicality of the normal so-called "Boater".

Can you take a pontoon boat in the ocean?

For the most part, the answer is no, as most would not handle the rough water. However, some more high pontoon boats could probably handle occasional shallow water ocean usage.

I would think some of the larger tri hulled models such as the ones at the link provided below could handle it.

What do red and green lights on a boat mean?

The red and green lights on a boat are side lights and assist in determining the direction the boat is facing. Red lights are on the port, or left side, while green lights are on the starboard, or right side. If you see only one side light, you are looking at that side of the boat. If you see both lights at the same time, that means that the boat is either headed towards you or away from you. If the red light is to the right, the boat is coming towards you (Red-Right-Returning). If the green light is to the right, the boat is going away from you.
