Canada, studies show boating is a safe family
activity. Almost every problem we hear about is
the result of a stupid decision mixing alcohol
with boating and/or ignoring safety regulations.
There are some very simple ways to keep you and
your family safe while boating.
most common accident to passengers and crew is
falling overboard. In fact, 40% of all fatal
boating accidents arise from this. It can be
avoided if boaters make sure they have good
footing and a good hand-hold at all times. If you
need to move around in the boat, hold on to both
sides and keep your weight low.
Don't mix alcohol and water. In a Red Cross
Society study, two-thirds of boating injury
victims where the blood alcohol level was
recorded had consumed alcohol. Almost 40% had an
alcohol level above the legal limit. In addition
to being illegal, it's clearly a dangerous idea to
operate a boat and drink.
Always carry enough Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs)
for each person on board. For water-skiing,
fishing or simply cruising, PFDs are absolutely
essential. It's now even easier to find the ideal
PFD because they're available in a wide array of
colours and patterns. Choose one to match your
swimsuit or boat and make sure it fits properly!
The Red Cross Society study noted 92% of
boating-related drowning victims were not wearing
a PFD or lifejacket correctly!
Boating, practiced by smart boaters is safe. U.S.
statistics show boating is twice as safe as
biking, five times as safe as driving and 24 times
as safe as scuba diving. By practicing safe
boating, you're guaranteed to have a great time
boating all summer long.
Boating is the
activity of traveling by boat. In particular,
it refers to the recreational use of boats,
typically focused on the traveling itself, as
opposed to activities just using the boat, such as
fishing, waterskiing or sailing. Even so, it
encompasses a wide variety of activities, ranging
from taking a rowboat on the pond of a city park,
to kayaking on the open sea. Boating is an
extremely popular activity, and there are millions
of boaters worldwide. Sailing is a category of
boating that uses wind-powered vessels, while
powerboating uses motorized vessels.
The obvious initial requirement for boating is a
boat. There is an entire industry devoted to
supplying both large and small vessels for
boaters. There also is an entire industry devoted
to supplying boat loans to people that cannot
afford to purchase a vessel outright. Most smaller
boats are stored at home and carried to the water
on boat trailers, where they are floated from
launch ramps leading down into the water. The
smallest boats and kayaks may simply be carried by
hand or by lashing it to the top of an automobile.
Larger boats are kept at marinas, which offer a
tie-up protected from the weather and a variety of
support services, such as fuel, equipment and so
Most boat trips begin and end in one day, while
longer trips are typically called cruises. While
other activities may be planned as part of the
trip, for many boaters the purpose is simply to
enjoy being out on the water; drinking and
partying are proverbial as part of the experience.
Being a recreational activity, most boating is
done in calm protected waters and during good
weather. Even so, conditions can change rapidly,
and a small vessel can get into life-threatening
difficulties. The coast guards of most nations
include boating safety and rescue as part of their
Boating is also lesser used as a term to describe
a common position of feline relaxation. The term
is used in American households to in relation to
the appearance of how a cat looks when its front
legs are tucked beneath it. In this position, the
cat looks as if it has no appendages, yet sits
tucked in and appears to float on the carpet as a
boat would on water. Thus arose the term boating.
Usage: "Check it out, your cat's boatin'!"
