Summer is a great time to spend the day on the water. For those who own boats, this may be a favorite pass time. Although fun, boating can be dangerous without taking preventative safety measures. Minimize risk of injury and property damage with these tips:

- Do not exceed the number of passengers safely allowed on the boat.
- Be aware of your surroundings including, water conditions, weather and debris.
