Top 10 Boat Safety Precaution Tips for Boaters

Top 10 Boat Safety Precaution Tips for Boaters
One of the most valuable lessons learned is you can never be to prepared whether you are going on a fishing trip, boat tour, or a pleasure trip.

Something that should be on every boaters mind is safety and precautionary measures while out on the water. If your on a rowboat, speed boat, show boat, or a pontoon these tips should be useful.

1. Always check your local weather service before you go out on the water. If for some odd reason your weather provider’s prediction is wrong, look for darkening clouds, a temperature drop, or changing winds. Be safe and get off the water if a sudden weather change occurs.

2. Make a check list before going out. We all forget stuff when we are rushing ourselves. Make a check list before you head out, it will ensure you don’t forget anything important.
Some marine safety supplies that might be helpful are a flashlight (click here to see video of Safety Strobe Megaphone with flashlight), first aid kit, additional life jackets, visual distress signal, and an audio distress signal. All these supplies can be helpful in an emergency situation and can save your life.

To extend your voice even more look into a Portable PA System or a megaphone. These items would help you communicate to other boaters and safety professionals during emergencies or disaster situations.
3. Familiarize yourself with the boating regulations, the layout of the lake, and the layout of your vessel. Knowledge of all theses things is beneficial. It will provide extra safety on the water for you, and your passengers.

4. Put passengers to work. If you need help navigating or watching for other boats you could as your passengers to help you out.

5. Get onto land or back into the boat as soon as possible if you fall in freezing water. Being in cold water steals your body heat 32 times faster then cold air. Find the nearest spot to get out of the water and swim there immediately. Treading water trying to make a decision can shorten survival time by 50%.

6. Know how to swim. As crazy as it sounds, there have been incidences of people falling off their boat and not being able to swim. It would make sense to take a swimming class if your going to be around the water all day.

7. Get a free vessel safety check. These are offered by the United States Coast Guard for free. You can find a local vessel safety check using this website They check safety equipment and the overall condition of your boat.

8. Watch out for the prop. A prop can spin 160 times per second so it’s best to not board your boat via the drive unit. Get a ladder and board the safe way.

9. Install a carbon monoxide device in your boats cabin. Carbon monoxide is odorless and deadly. So it’s not a bad idea to install one if your boat has an indoor cabin to prevent you from inhaling the fumes. Carbon monoxide exposure while rare can be fatal, do the smart thing and buy a carbon monoxide detector.

4 Essential Boat Dock Accessories

It is often necessary to rent a dock in the yachting marina when you purchase a boat. To make this dock more comfortable and easy to manage it would be nice to have some trappings and added extras, which would also personalize the area and make it a more colorful place.

This gives you an incentive to go in for some fancy trappings that will also be a protective component for your boat. Prior to making up your mind as to what accessories you may want, it is better to get an idea of what is available and how useful these gadgets are. One way to go about this is to go through the internet or through catalogues that are available with the boat dealer. This will give you a wide range to select from and also describe the uses of the various accessories.

Some essential accessories

1. Dock Ladders : A dock ladder is a very essential equipment to have. Not only does this help you with easy access into the water, but it will also provide you with a safer way to inspect the outer area of your boat. This could also help you to reach the dock from the boat if you cannot reach it easily.

2. Dock Bumpers : Dock bumpers safe guard your boat from bumping into the two sides in case the winds are strong or the water is surging. Bumpers will also protect the exterior of your boat from getting scratched and damaging the paint. The bumpers will allow the boat to only touch soft areas. The concept is very like a car bumper

3. Dock Wheels : Make it easy to maneuver your boat . In case you have a narrow area as a slot to dock your boat and find it difficult to maneuver your boat into it, dock wheels will assist you by clamping onto the boat corners and gliding your boat into the proper position without your having to struggle with several attempts to dock. Dock wheels are a very useful component for those who have recently acquired their boat and are still not quite experienced in getting their boats into narrow slots that are a very tight fit.

4. Dock Floats : Dock floats keep the boat at a higher level than the water and ensure that the boat is not moving around due to strong winds and damaging the sides.

Take a look at catalogues

To get a full picture of the accessories available for boat docks it would help to go through catalogues to see what exactly your requirement is. Your boat dealer could also give you guidance on the kind of accessories you require for boat docks.

Always get a hold of several options and weigh the pros and cons before finalizing your buy. One more thing you should keep abreast of are the new gadgets that are coming into the market and wait a while to buy the most modern implements instead of getting stuck with something that will soon turn obsolete.
