TO WORK EFFICIENTLY IN THE COLD WATER. THEREFORE...IT IS RECOMMENDED
TO CONSIDER POSTPONING SMALL CRAFT BOATING ACTIVITIES UNTIL WATER
TEMPERATURES BECOME WARMER. HOWEVER...IF YOU CHOOSE TO VENTURE
OUT...WEAR ALL RECOMMENDED COLD WATER PROTECTIVE GEAR...INCLUDING
A LIFE JACKET...IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT.
