3 Tips For Safe Boating
Educate your family and friends on boating safety. If everyone knows how to be safe, each boating adventure will be fun in the sun on the lakes of Minnesota.
Proper safety gear must be accessible and worn at all times while on the water. Stock your boat with emergency equipment including fire extinguishers, flares, and distress signals in the event of a boating emergency on the water. A very high-frequency radio is recommended for long-range communication as cell phones are not reliable on the water.
Many boating accidents involve alcohol. Just like the rules of the road, it is important to abstain from consuming alcohol or drugs while operating a boat. In most states, it is illegal to operate a boat with a blood alcohol content of .08% or greater.
Cold Water Boating
Boating is an option all year round, regardless of the weather. While the water is less crowded with boats during winter months, cold water boating is a great option and something many boating aficionados enjoy. It is important to dress in layers with extra insulation available. The outermost layer should be a waterproof or water-resistant material. Pack extra dry clothes, food, and warm beverages for an enjoyable trip.
