HERE’S A FEW TIPS THEY SAY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE UNDER CONSIDERATION. FIRST, ALWAYS CHECK THE FORECAST BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT AND WATCH FOR STORMS AND HIGH WINDS. IF THE WEATHER DOESN’T LOOK GOOD, THINK ABOUT CHANGING PLANS. NEXT, YOU’LL ALSO WANT TO CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT AND FLOATABLES TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS WORKING PROPERLY. LAST, EVERYONE ON BOARD SHOULD BE WEARING A LIFE JACKET, BUT THAT RULE IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR KIDS UNDER 10 YEARS OLD.>>Beitel: ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANT TO REALLY, REALLY TELL FOLKS IS NOT ONLY WEAR THAT LIFE PRESERVER, BUT LET’S BOAT SAFELY, LET’S BOAT SOBER, SO LET’S NOT MIX THE TWO OF THOSE THINGS TOGETHER. MAKE SURE JUST LIKE IF THEY’RE DRIVING A CAR, HAVING A VEHICLE, HAVING SOMEBODY ON BOARD THAT’S OPERATING THE BOAT THAT’S SOBER.>>Dennis: IT’S ALSO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT COLD WATER CAN KILL.
