When are you late?
« on: October 07, 2018, 08:36:18 AM »

Check in time is 3:00. You arrive at 3:00:35. Off plane inside no wake buoy. Penalty is a pound a minute up to 15 minutes.
Saw this for the first time yesterday and hadn't really thought of it before. Had some one come in at 3:01:10 what is the penalty?
I have arrived late before but it was well beyond the 15 minute mark.....haven't worn a watch since lol

My take on this is you are late if you are late.  While i realize that many circumstances might exist the cold hard fact is that if you have a 3pm check in time then you gotta be checked in before 3pm.  It is the anglers responsibility to manage their time to ensure that they are within the rules.

When I fished ABA the only time it was allowable was if you ran Lake Ontario and pulled over by the Coast Guard, you had to prove it, the CG gave a copy of the inspection report.

That would be one pound and 1/6th of a pound or 2.67 oz. I think. I'm no math genius but I think it would just be what ever the seconds divided out to be in ounces or what ever.

Uncle Sam's Misguided Children teaches us that 15 minutes prior is on time, on time is late.

If check in is 3:00:00. At 3:00:01 you are 1 minute late. At 3:01:01 you are 2 minutes late, etc.
On our weigh ins, there is a guy standing at a pre-determined location that you must check in with your boat number. He confirms it with your name.
If you are late he tells you right then and there.
Official time is announced multiple times during the morning prep for take off. No excuses

Ya late, ya late, it's life, actions/happenings/circumstances.  Rules are rules, can't bend them, then before long they don't matter if you do.

I brought it up because I really hadn't thought about it before. I agree late is late. I have fished a few tournaments where the official clock was on display with hours minutes and seconds but normally the official time announced at smaller events does not include seconds. How precise is time on a cell phone? GPS unit?
Back in the day when we all wore a Timex I recall synchronizing with the official Timex which was always a bit different than mine for whatever reason lol

Cell phones and GPS are usually synced periodically with NIST and USNO over the airwaves. NIST stands for "National Institue of Standards and Technology", USNO is the US Naval Observatory.

Those two institutions are instrumental in maintaining the Coordinated Universal Time, the "time of day" around the world in it's respective time zones.

They use the atomic clocks to keep these standards. It's what I set my watch to, and I check it every now and then (Casio G-Shock).

So, in short, your cell phone and GPS are accurate as hell. They're not spot on down to the millisecond, usually due to a lag between the sync and update, but unless the time keeper is set by NIST, your device is likely more accurate.

All that being said, obviously the tournament clock is the one you're going by, so pick up a cheap digital watch and sync it to whatever time keeping device is being used.
If you're concerned about accuracy between your Timex and the big digital clock at the weigh in, you shouldn't be; the vast majority of digital quartz devices are accurate to within +/- .02 minutes per month or better. My G-Shock showed no difference down to the second when compared to NIST and USNO after owning it for around six months.

When i'm not early.  I hate to be late for anything. I get back early all the time. If I didn't figure them out by then I don't deserve to win.

In this particular case we were all early and checked in and the last boat came in hot and came off plane 35 seconds past by my Lowrance. They thought they made it and after a 40 or so mile run in 3's (Champlain) they had beat the crap out of themselves. They handled the loss of a pound well......not happy about it.
