As winter fades away and we welcome another spring, were here to help you get ready for your best boating season yet!
Many people know Minnesota just as a state with long, cold winters. Yet residents of this great Midwest state know the beauty and wonder of the region’s lakes, streams and rivers. Even Minnesota’s name is tied to the state’s signature natural resource: in the language of the local Dakota tribe, Minnesota means “water that reflects the sky.”
There’s no better place to be than Minnesota. Though it’s in the middle of the landlocked Midwest, Minnesota is awash in water. You might know it as the land of 10,000 lakes (and that’s not an exaggeration, some counts have it as high as 15,000). So there’s a lot more to do than just take a quick dip.
With its large number of boaters,there is more water traffic than ever. Unfortunately, the risk for boat collisions has also increased. Coast Guard data show that “collision with another vessel” is the number one type of recreational boating accident; “collision with a fixed object” is second.
Whether you are fishing, water skiing or simply boating for the pleasure of being on the water, the importance of boating safety can’t be overemphasized. Boat owners and operators must follow Minnesota boating rules to ensure their safety. You must have a complete knowledge of your boat, its handling and the boating rules of the road.
Avoid potential situations and get on with the fun of being out there with all that sky, sun, water, family and friends. A boating safety course can help. A course covers many aspects of boating safety, from boat handling to reading the weather, and from a “Water ‘N Kids” class to courses for boaters who want to learn electronic navigation skills. Learn to be a better boater – no matter how much boating experience you have, there’s always more to learn.
For your own safety and the safety of others, it is important to ensure the boat’s continued safe operation through proper maintenance and repair. Name another vehicle made purely for your pleasure—that lets you catch a fish, feel the wind, and relax with family and friends—all day long. Yes, a boat can do all that. Shouldn’t you take care of it?
We suggest you develop a routine maintenance plan to assure that they remain in first-rate condition and continue to operate properly. The cost of repairing a boat that has been underwater, even briefly, is usually about 40% of its value.
Also, get a vessel safety check. Make sure that your boat was in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws during a safety check for the year. Best of all every Vessel Safety Check is 100% Free of charge!
