 Boating/Hunting Tips

BEFORE YOU STEP INTO A BOAT, WE ASK THAT YOU REMEMBER AND STICK BY THE THREE “R”s

1. RESPECT FOR SELF

2. RESPECT FOR OTHERS

3. RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL YOUR ACTIONS!

Always wear a life jacket! Drowning is the second leading cause of death in Alaska.

Obtain local knowledge! Local knowledge is invaluable in avoiding hazards that are not always easy to identify.

Alcohol and boating do not mix! Alcohol has negative effects on your judgment, balance and reaction time. Alcohol also increases heat loss and increases the risk of hypothermia

Always complete a Float Plan! Make sure someone knows where you plan on being, how long you will be there and who to notify when you are overdue.

Don’t Over load! Follow the recommendations of the capacity plate and owner’s manual for your vessel.

Educate Yourself! Learn how to do basic troubleshooting and field repairs. Make sure your passengers know where your safety equipment is and how to use it.
