...SUMMER BOATING SAFETY REMINDERS...

MANY PEOPLE GO BOATING DURING THE SUMMER.  WHEN YOU ARE OUT ON THE
WATER, HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

* IF YOU START TO SEE CLOUDS DEVELOP VERTICALLY, A THUNDERSTORM MAY
  BE FORMING. DO NOT WAIT! HEAD FOR PORT AND SAFE SHELTER
  IMMEDIATELY.
* WHEN YOU ARE OUT ON THE WATER, REMEMBER: LOOK BUT DO NOT TOUCH. DO
  NOT TOUCH, HANDLE, FEED, OR RIDE ON MARINE ANIMALS. AVOID CONTACT
  WITH CORAL REEFS. MAKE SURE YOUR ANCHOR IS CLEAR OF CORALS AND DO
  NOT TOUCH THEM WHEN DIVING.
* CARRY IN, CARRY OUT. THIS RULE IS NOT ONLY FOR CAMPSITES AND
  HIKING TRAILS. WHEN YOU ARE OUT ON THE WATER OR ON THE BEACH, MAKE
  SURE YOU LEAVE NO TRACE. HELP FIGHT THE GLOBAL MARINE DEBRIS
  PROBLEM. HAZARDOUS SURF, POLLUTION, RED TIDES, JELLYFISH, AND
  SHARKS ARE JUST A FEW OF THE POTENTIAL DANGERS IN OUR COASTAL
  WATERS.
* KNOW BEFORE YOU GO. GET LOCAL CONDITIONS AND REPORTS BEFORE
  ENTERING THE OCEAN. LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE FROM 10 MILES AWAY.
  FISHERMEN AND BOATERS CAN BEST PROTECT THEMSELVES AGAINST
  LIGHTNING INJURY OR DEATH BY MONITORING THE WEATHER AND POSTPONING
  OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES WHEN THUNDERSTORMS ARE IN THE FORECAST. IF
  PEOPLE CAN HEAR THUNDER, THEY ARE IN DANGER OF BEING STRUCK BY
  LIGHTNING.
* REGISTER YOUR BOATS SAFETY BEACON WITH NOAA TO HELP RESCUERS FIND
  YOU FASTER IN AN EMERGENCY! IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SAFETY BEACON,
  GET ONE! IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE!
