National Safe Boating Week

Boating is an incredible past time but like many of our favorite activities safety is of the utmost importance. During National Safe Boating Week in preparation for summer and the boating season, we take a moment to review some of the most important boating safety tips and the critical importance of always wearing a life jacket each and every time on the water. Boating safety advocates across the United States and Canada have teamed up to promote safe and responsible boating during National Safe Boating Week. Share this information with family and friends who join you on the boat. You can never be too careful - fun boating is safe boating!
