Safety Tips

  • Family fishing from Polar Kraft boat

    Never round points too close, especially at speed.

    Taking a wide line around a point makes for increased boating safety.
  • Large boat bearing down on fishermen

    What happened after this viral smash-up at the mouth of the Columbia is just as scary as the crash itself.

    Three salmon fishermen survive a scary boating accident and learn the importance of wearing a life jacket while on the water.
  • Gale Force twins

    Always designate a sober skipper.

    A captain's #1 is the safety and well being of the crew and everyone onboard. That's why the Gale Force Twins ride dry and drive dry.
