  • Know your boat’s limitations as well as your own
  • Take note of visibility, traffic density and the proximity of navigation hazards like shoals, rocks or floating objects
  • Never drink alcohol while boating
  • Always wear a life jacket and insist that your crew and guests do the same
  • Understand and obey boating safety recommendations and navigational rules
