Safety Matters on the Water and at the Dock

Keeping your crew and craft safe requires constant awareness of your surroundings and planning for all contingencies. When out on the water, it’s important to see and be seen in order to avoid collisions. Your crew and passengers need be able see charts and where they are stepping when light is low. Coming into dock, you need to avoid bumping other boats by knowing the angle of your rudder. Even when docked or anchored, it’s important to be able to get back on board easily, and to protect your hull from damage from shock waves.
