How do I call for a MAYDAY?

Switch your VHF radio to channel 16 and say MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY three times and identify yourself, and state the emergency. The caller should have as much information as possible: the position, boat type, geographic location, and any medical information that may be necessary.
