Your Risk

clipsBoating is a fun activity when you know what to do.

A day in the sun, wind and waves can affect your vision, alertness and reaction times.

Your passenger's attention and balance will be affected too! Alcohol is a big factor.

A capsize can happen unexpectedly in small boats. A fall overboard in cold water is very dangerous due to the gasp reflex.

Your Responsibility

zipperAs the owner or operator of a boat you have a duty of care to your passengers.

You must provide a lifejacket that fits each size of person properly. When should you insist that they wear it?

Can you ensure their safety?

Are you fully prepared for a sudden emergency situation? Does everyone know exactly what to do?
