Our good friend John Paulson from Huffman & Huffman joins Ashley and Quincy to break down the laws of the waterways! He also gives us some helpful tips when it comes to boating safety.
But first things first, and that’s safety! John reminds us how important it is to have the essential safety items with you when boating.
So, make sure to have your lifejackets, floatable throw ring, a radio and flares. And of course, bring plenty of water to drink because it’s easy to get dehydrated when you are out in the sun.
Also, it’s always a good idea to let someone know where you will be; cell phones don’t always get service out on the water, and if an accident happens you want someone to know where to find you.
Did you know that just traffic laws on the roads, there are boating laws on the water? It’s true! You don’t want to be a distracted driver, and definitely don’t drink and drive a boat.
