Florida Watercraft Safety

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with HO Insurance

A day out on the lake jet-skiing or canoeing in a river is relaxing and always a good time. However, if you're not careful, an accident can crop up out of nowhere and ruin the fun. Here are a few pointers to take with you on your watercraft:

  • Only travel on specified waterways. This goes for launching your watercraft as well.
  • Always wear a life jacket.
  • Maintain a safe speed on your watercraft and remember to always go slowly through shallow areas.
  • Always be sure you have the right amount of fuel for your trip.
  • Only re-board your watercraft from the back of it.
  • Be sure that someone on shore knows of your travel plans. Tell them when to expect you back.
  • As most watercrafts don't have lights, avoid riding at night.
  • Do not weigh down the watercraft too heavily.
  • Always bring a first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, and a fire extinguisher.
  • Always check the weather forecast before setting off.
  • It's never a good idea to become intoxicated while on a watercraft.
  • Keep your watercraft insurance policy updated annually.
