Fall boating safety takes more importance

Fewer boaters will be taking to the water as the seasons turn, but the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary in Sturgeon Bay hopes they are still vigilant with their safety. That is especially true for kayakers, which according to Vice Flotilla Commander Jeff Feuerstein is responsible for more fatalities in Door County than any other vessel. He says they can be as dangerous as much as they are popular.

 Feuerstein advises all boaters to make sure they own personal floatation devices, carry a whistle,  and get their vessels checked for safety every year.
