As boat dealers, we are experts on all things boats, and we know that there is nothing more important for boat owners than practicing safe boating. With that said, here are some boat safety tips from Nationwide for all of our fellow water lovers:
- Preparation is key to practicing safety boating. This means that you should place all necessary supplies in your boat to ensure your safety in case of an accident or unexpected event. This includes enough life jackets for everyone on board your ship, as well as a flashlight, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit.
- Another part of preparation when boating is to check the weather beforehand. If the forecast calls for stormy weather, high winds, or choppy weather, it’s best to practice precaution and schedule your boating trip for another time.
- You should also routinely have your boat checked to make sure that everything is in working order. Additionally, you can have the Coast Guard inspect the safety of your boat for free.
- When operating a boat, be sure to pay attention to your surroundings and practice precaution. Don’t get too close to other vessels and drive at a safe speed. Also be sure to follow all signs and regulations on the water.
