Early summer boating safety tips

The United States Coast Guard is reminding you to take the proper precautions before heading out on the water with your boat, especially with the cold water temperatures this time of year.  Chief Petty Officer Michael Padden from the U.S Coast Guard Station in Sturgeon Bay says it is important to devise a float plan before leaving the dock or launching your boat.

 

 

According to the most recent U.S. Coast Guard statistics, boating activity during the pandemic increased considerably.   There were 767 boating fatalities in 2020, a 25.1 percent increase from the previous year.  The United States Coast Guard offers useful apps online to make your boating experience safer for all aboard the vessel.  You can find information on boating safety and download the apps here.
