Make sure your boat is properly maintained. Boating accidents can result when the boat or boat safety equipment fails.
Before going out on the water, perform a check of all systems and safety
items to ensure that everything is in safe working order and that you
have adequate safety/emergency equipment on hand.
Never operate a boat under the influence of alcohol. Boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs (BUI) is illegal and is
the culprit behind a large number of preventable accidents. If you are
operating a boat, always do so sober!
Maintain a safe speed at all times. Excessive speed contributes to a large amount of collisions, injuries,
and deaths. Be sure to always obey speed limits and adjust your speed
appropriately depending on current weather and water conditions.
Consider a boating safety course. Operator inexperience can easily contribute to a preventable boating accident.
Whether you are new to boating or are a more experienced operator, an
accredited boater safety course is a great way to improve your skills
and make you a better and safer boater.
