Marine Rescue has warned seafarers to check equipment, safety gear and to log on with Marine Rescue before they head out to sea.
Crews have rescued a number of vessels over the past 48 hours across the South Coast.
A Marine Rescue spokesman said seafarers should check they have safety gear, weather conditions and that they have logged on with Marine Rescue.
He said to also check they have logged off, to avoid Marine Rescue sending out a search team.
He said to check all equipment, engines and batteries before heading out to sea.
"Always use clean fuel," he said.
If fuel wasn't used since the Christmas period, it was probably not clean and useable.
On Tuesday, April 16, Marine Rescue jet skis were called to tow a tinny with three people on board at Wagonga Inlet, Narooma. Another rescue took place in Bermagui with three people on board, caused by mechanical failure.
On Monday April 15, a vessel broke down off Glassrocks Rd, Narooma with one person on board. Marimbula crews also assisted a vessel off Tathra with two people on board.
There were general break downs across the South Coast.
"Easter is here," the spokesman said.
