Safety tips and precautions, laws and regulations, and equipment for boating safety.
Every summer, many people are injured or even killed because they fail to follow proper boating safety tips. If you are a new boater, you should be sure to take a boating course, and you should read your boat manual carefully. Check the requirements in your state in case there are specific laws regarding owning and operating boats.
1. Always wear a life jacket. Have enough life jackets for everyone in the boat.
2. Always keep small children in their life jackets. It can only take a second for a small child to disappear overboard when someone's back is turned. 3. Instruct all the people who ride in the boat with you about proper safety techniques.
4. Once on the lake, observe posted speed limits, and right-of-way marker buoys.
5. Drive defensively. Don't cut in front of others.
6. Show courtesy to other boaters.
7. If you are going boating alone, be sure to tell someone what lake you will be on, and what time you will return.
8. Have an easily accessible fire extinguisher available in case of a fire.
9. Don't drink and drive.
10. Obey all lake rules, such as no-wake zones.
11. Make sure you have a tow rope on board in case your boat breaks down. That way, if another boater comes along, he or she can tow you back to the boat dock.
12. Have emergency devices such as a flare gun and an air horn on board.
13. Most people these days have cell phones for emergencies, so don't forget to bring yours along. Be sure to put it somewhere safe in the boat, though. You don't want it to fall overboard.
14. Have your keys on a floating keychain in case you accidentally drop them into the water. You should remember to store all your valuables in a safe place, because, again, you don't want them to fall into the water.
15. When driving, watch for waterskiers, tubers, and jet skiers. A lot of times, jet skiers zoom all over the lake and they can cut right in front of you before you know it. In addition, jet skis (and tubes) can carry more than one person, often children, and they may not understand all the rules of the road, especially since parents let their young children drive jet skis (even if they are not supposed to).
16. After unloading your boat into the water, be sure you tie it securely to the dock. You do not want to come back from parking your trailer to find that your boat has drifted out into the lake.
17. When loading your boat, be careful when putting your boat onto the trailer. Make sure all latches and tow ropes are properly secured before pulling the trailer out of the water.
18. After loading the boat onto the trailer and pulling it out of the water, make sure that all unsecured items such as trash, fishing poles, and tackle boxes are secured. You do not want to be driving down the road and have something fly out of the back of your boat into following traffic.
19. Be sure to check the boat trailer lights and tires before setting out on the road.
20. Carry a paddle in the boat in case of an engine breakdown. Sometimes you might want to carry more than one paddle. It is not unknown for paddles to break.
21. You might also want to carry a spare battery in case the regular battery fails for some reason.
22. Before leaving the dock, make sure you have enough gas in the gas tank, and that all engine fluids have been properly maintained.
23. Wear sunscreen.
