Does your boat have a life jacket, paddle and whistle? If not, you are not prepared for boating as not having those items could be a matter of life or death.
Get started before you hit the water, you can never be too prepared.
It’s always a good idea to check the weather before leaving your home.
Check your boat, and make sure there are enough life vests for everyone, including infants.
Don’t drink while boating, not only are you putting yourself in danger, you could potentially hurt someone else.
Also, there is debris you may not see from your boat, so watching your speed is very important.
Make sure any child under the age of twelve have a life jacket whether the boat is moving.
