SAFE BOATING

When on the water, remember you are sharing it. Keep a sharp lookout for boats, skiers and other hazards. Common sense goes a long way. Ask yourself:

+ Are weather conditions safe?

+ Is there at least one personal flotation device (life jacket) for every person on board?

+ Am I overloading the boat?

+ Is emergency gear (fire extinguisher, bailer, paddle, anchor and line, signaling device, tool kit, first aid kit, etc.) in place?

+ Is the steering system working smoothly and properly?

+ Is the battery fully charged and are the cable terminals clean and tight?

+ Does the fuel system have adequate fuel _ are there leaks or fumes?
