Early in the boating season, water temperatures on rivers, ponds
and lakes remain rather cold. Immersion in cold water can be life
threatening very quickly due to hypothermia and the bodies inability
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.
