Stay safe this summer, on and off the water

Summer can be a time to shake off all those winter woes, and finally get back out into the sun. But in your haste to have fun, don’t forget these basic tips that will help you to not only have a great time, but also to keep safe this summer.

Remember to always have impeccable communication while boating. This can mean a number of things- always checking that everyone in your boat is seated and ready before you start the engine, vocalizing your intents and actions while loading and unloading boat trailers, and having a spotter during water sports to let you know if an athlete has fallen. Whatever it is you’re doing, communication can be key, and helps to make sure everyone knows exactly what’s going on at all times.

Make sure all the parts on your boat are running smooth to ensure you’re never dead in the water. A yearly checkup when you commission your boat for summer will make sure there are no surprises when you finally get out on the water.

Last, always make sure to wear sunscreen and take proper measures to ensure your own physical health. Stay hydrated and pay attention to your body.

No matter what you’re doing, make sure to stay safe out there.
