Take a Boating Safety Course

“One of the best ways to learn the rules of the water is to take a boating safety course,” says Foremost’s senior marine product manager, Brad Seeley. Most of the boating deaths that occur are accidents caused by operators who had not taken any boating safety course (according to the 2008 United States Coast Guard data).

The US Coast Guard lists several types of boating safety courses and describes what each course covers. You can learn more by visiting their site at www.uscgboating.org.
