Fall Boating Safety

In the Fall, As Always, Safety First 

According to the newly released U.S. Coast Guard's 2008 Recreational Boating Statistics, a boater's odds of dying during a boating mishap go up in October and November. With the waterways much less crowded, why are these the deadliest months? Usually, it's because the boater is unprepared for the conditions.
The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water,  a national nonprofit education and research organization, suggests that boaters always:
* Wear a life jacket. Cold water saps strength; a PFD can buy you a little more time
* Make sure a ladder or dockline will let you get back aboard without assistance
 * Dress appropriately. Sunny does not necessarily equal warm
 * Tell a friend where you're going and when you plan to return. When someone knows you're overdue, he or she can alert authorities jacket
 * Always carry a VHF radio. For backup, an Emergency Positioning Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), or even a cell phone, can call for help.
