Safety Advice Straight from a Survivor


To say that boating safety advice is often ignored would be an understatement. That’s why this article by Shannon Tompkins in the Houston Chronicle jumped out at us.

The article not only presents good boating safety tips you can use, but Ms. Tompkins paints us a picture of how some of the advice actually saved the life of a waterfowl hunter who was rescued after spending 12 hours in the water.

This story is a must-read for all boaters, whether your vessel is a bass boat or a mega yacht, power or sail. Please share it with a boater you care about, and don't forget to check FirstBoat's boating safety tips for even more common sense advice for boaters.
