Saturday (May 19, 2012) was the first day of National Safe Boating Week, which typically occurs the week leading up to Memorial Day Weekend – one of the busiest weekends of the year for boating, and the start of the season for many boaters across the United States.

This year during National Safe Boating Week, and throughout the boating season, remember to…

  1. practice safe and responsible boating, 
  2. always wear your life jacket, and 
  3. be alert and aware while on the water. 

By practicing these simple steps you can save your life as well as the lives of the people boating with you.  Life jackets are now more comfortable and lightweight than ever, with many new styles to fit the style you want.

Safe boating saves lives so for this year’s North American Safe Boating Week and throughout the boating season remember to “Wear It!”

  1. Life jackets are definitely a part of our boating experience!

    Another good thing to keep in mind about life jackets: Don’t place heavy items on them or use them as fenders– they loose buoyancy when crushed.

    Thanks for the helpful tips!
