Boating Basics

Operating a boat means more than just getting in and turning the key or hoisting a sail. As a boater, you need to know all about federal and state boating laws, required safety equipment, operational characteristics of your boat, what to do during an emergency and the environment where you operate, before venturing onto the water. The more you know before you go can make a significant safety difference once you're on the water.

I could not agree more with the statement of "Operating a boat means more than just getting in and turning a key."  I have many customers that buy boats and have absolutely no boating knowledge.  This video does a good job of showing the basics to boating.
