Fishing boats can be lethal for boaters.
That’s because they are designed to hold a steady flow of water that can lead to sudden bursts of speed.
If the fish are not careful, the boat can quickly change direction and crash.
And if the boat is too slow to stop and catch the fish, they can fall into the water and drown.
Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind when it comes to boating.1.
Be aware of where you are swimmingThe most dangerous place to swim in is the water’s surface.
The more the surface of the water is covered with water, the faster the speed increases.2.
Make sure you have plenty of life jackets to keep you from getting sucked in by the currentThe more buoyancy you have in the water, which will slow your speed, the less buoyancy will you need to have to hold on to.
The closer you are to the surface, the slower your speed will be.3.
If you want to save your boat from being swept away, swim to the side and turn the water around so that it comes toward you instead of into the boat.4.
If your boat is in a hurry, do not swim alone.
Make your way to the back of the boat, close the water door and wait until it is clear.
Once you are on the other side of the door, turn around and continue swimming.
