President Trump recently released a proclamation declaring this week “National Safe Boating Week.” With the growing sense of excitement for the upcoming holiday weekend, NMMA shares the president’s request for safe boating practices.
Memorial Day weekend should be an enjoyable time with family and friends and NMMA encourages boat operators to review boating safety practices before pulling away from the dock. Boat operators should consider the United States Coast Guard’s requirements, such as requiring a life jacket for each person aboard the vessel, as well as take advantage of the USCG’s free vessel safety checks.
NMMA recognizes the importance of taking these precautions. By taking a few extra moments to consider safe boating practices, boaters can better ensure that they will enjoy a well-deserved long weekend on the water.
