Boat like your future depends on it. Practice safe boating in all your adventures. Yield the right of way to non-powered craft like rafts and canoes and slow down when passing other fishermen or boaters. Keep your wake low along erosion-prone banks, and never harass waterfowl or wildlife. Above all, keep lifesaving equipment close at hand and wear a lifejacket. Show that you care. Drive like you mean it.
