Safety this Summer & New Products for 2014

It’s finally time to uncover the boat and welcome Summer 2014! And we know you’re ready to get the boat in the water, pack a cooler and slather on the sunscreen for some outdoor fun.  But don’t forget the safety, check all your PFD’s for condition, wear and tear and do they still fit everyone - especially kids as they have grown over the winter.

Safety in the Sun


A great season on the water starts with preparation and safety, check those PFD’s, your boater safety kit with signaling device (whistle), bailer and a paddle... just in case.  Water safety always comes first, so here’s a few tips to make sure your summer is fun and safe:

• Test the strength of your ropes before using
• Check your pumps to make sure they are functioning before you set out
• Have everyone - young children, inexperienced swimmers and experienced swimmers alike -  wear life jackets when boating.  A life jacket can only work if you wear it.
• Always have one person on board in addition to the driver who can monitor the safety of all riders being towed behind your boat
• Only swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards - and stay with a buddy!
• Never leave a young child unattended near water - even with a life jacket
• A small battery powered LED flashlight is good to tuck into all life jackets on board - make sure to check those batteries!
• If you are heading out with your family, consider taking a safety & CPR course
