Boating Council Offers Summer Safety Tips

Posted on May 22, 2019 at 3:35 PM by Adam Rosen

May 18-24 is National Safe Boating Week. Enjoy beautiful Lake Pleasant and take some simple precautions to make this a fun and safe summer. A boat’s engine releases carbon monoxide through the tailpipes. Do not swim or stand near exhaust vent areas, including the back deck or swim platform.

State law requires all passengers 12 years old and younger to wear a properly fastened life jacket while onboard. Each vessel must have one life jacket for each passenger. Just like driving, operating a watercraft under the influence is illegal. Operate the boat at a speed and in a manner safe for the conditions. Stay safe and have a great summer at the lake.
