| Mar 31, 2020 | Personal Injury |

With spring here and summer just around the corner, one thing that is important to talk about is being safe while boating. Recreational boating accidents are a real risk for people on the water, but with good safety techniques and training, the likelihood of boat crashes taking place can be limited.

Before you go out on the water, it’s a good idea to look over these three helpful tips. With good preparation, you may be able to prevent injuries on the water.

Get training on traveling after dark or before dawn

Lots of people head out onto the water at night or in the early morning. It’s a fun time to fish, and it’s not as hot as it will be once the sun’s up. Take the time to get to know the lighting regulations for your boat, because you need to maintain visibility to prevent a collision.

Check the weather before you board

Another important tip is to check the weather before you board. If you do, you will know if there are any storms coming, if you should expect heavy waves and how else you may be affected that day.

Take a water safety course and boating course

Finally, take a boating course to learn driving techniques and safety requirements. You can also take a water safety course, so you can learn more about the signs of drowning, what to do if there is an emergency and other essential information.

These are three tips that can help keep you safer on the water. Enjoy your time out, but always be prepared for the worst.
