Safety is the paramount reason for the rules of the road and for courtesy on the water.
Whether a sailboat or power cruiser, kayak or SUP, small boat, large boat, or PWC, remember we share the waterways with each other and it's important to consider other users of the waterways.
There are many new boaters on the water now and they may not know the rules or courtesies of the best actions to take. So please be doubly alert. And if you count yourself among these new boaters, welcome to the water. Consider taking a boating safety course.
