Rules of the Water Road

Boaters!  Before Getting Underway
Know your boat and know the rules of the road. Take a safe boating course.

  • Check your boat for all required safety equipment.
  • Consider the size of your boat, the number of passengers and the amount of extra equipment that will be on-board. DONíT OVERLOAD THE BOAT!
  • If you will be in a power boat, check your electrical system and fuel system for gas fumes.
  • Follow manufacturerís suggested procedures BEFORE starting up the engine.
  • Wear your life jacket Ė donít just carry one on board.
  • Leave your alcohol behind. Work to increase your safety, not increase your risks!
  • Check the weather forecast.
  • File a float plan with a member of your family or friend.

Since most drowning victims had no intention of being in water and since most people drown within 10-30 feet of safety, it is important that you and your family learn to swim.

Please remember:

Never rely on toys such as inner tubes and water wings to stay afloat.

  • Donít take chances, by over estimating your swimming skills.
  • Swim only in designated swimming areas.
  • Never swim alone.
