If you do own a boat or personal water
craft, you have plenty of company. There were
nearly one million boats registered in the state
of Florida in 2015 and nearly as many smaller,
unregistered boats. With all that company in the
water, it helps to:
1. Know your boat, the equipment, controls and
2. Obey signs and notices regarding vessel
speeds. Be aware of all restricted areas.
3. Pay attention to the weather, it can change
4. Make sure that someone who is not onboard
with you knows where you plan to go and
how long you will be on the water.
5. Always wear a Coast Guard approved life
jacket and have your passengers wear one
too. All children 5 and younger must wear a
life jacket in any vessel under 26’.
6. Keep a flashlight, first aid kit, drinking water,
marine radio and sunscreen in watertight
conditions on your boat.
