...SAFE BOATING WEEK CONTINUES...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS PARTNERED WITH THE NATIONAL SAFE
BOATING COUNCIL TO HELP PROMOTE SAFE BOATING PRACTICES.

...NAVIGATION RULES OF THE ROAD...

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN APPROACHING, MEETING OR OVER TAKING
ANOTHER BOAT? BEFORE YOU TAKE YOUR BOAT OUT ON THE WATER THIS
SEASON, ITS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW THE NAUTICAL RULES OF THE ROAD.

THE NAUTICAL RULES OF THE ROAD ARE THE NAVIGATION RULES FOR
PREVENTING COLLISIONS ON THE WATER.  KNOWING THE NAUTICAL RULES OF
THE ROAD IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL BOATERS. KNOWING WHAT TO DO WHEN
MEETING, CROSSING OR OVER TAKING ANOTHER BOAT CAN PREVENT COSTLY
DAMAGE TO YOUR BOAT, PERSONAL INJURY OR EVEN LOSS OF LIFE. WHENEVER
YOU BELIEVE THERE IS A RISK OF COLLISION YOU SHOULD SLOW DOWN, STOP
OR STEER AWAY FROM THE SITUATION AS DESCRIBED IN THE NAVIGATION
RULES. MAINTAINING A PROPER LOOKOUT AND A SAFE SPEED ARE ALL A PART
OF THE NAVIGATION RULES AND SHOULD BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR BOAT
OPERATION.

TAKE SOME TIME TO LEARN THE NAUTICAL RULES OF THE ROAD THIS SUMMER
AND ENSURE SAFER BOATING FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY, AND THE OTHER BOATERS
ON THE WATER.
