Operation Dry Water and the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) are Operation Dry Water - National Safe Boating Weekreminding boaters during National Safe Boating Week, May 16 – 22, 2020, to boat sober this summer. National Safe Boating Week brings attention to important lifesaving tips for recreational boaters and takes place just prior to Memorial Day weekend, the kick-off of the boating season for many. Millions of boaters will head to the water, taking advantage of the warmer weather while honoring, celebrating and remembering all those who lost their lives while serving our country. Unfortunately, alcohol use by both operators and passengers often becomes part of these activities, causing an increase in the number of injuries, incidents and fatalities on the water.

Just because we aren't meeting doesn't mean safety on the water isn't important   We continue to post water safety-related information on this web site    We hope you find this information useful.

The Board has elected to cancel the May meeting.  We are still dealing with social distancing requirements and no end yet to permitting gatherings of more than 10 persons.

New Life Jacket Labels

APRIL 23, 2020 by National Safe Boating Council

Boaters love their gear, and most boaters have their favorite life jacket. As we head into boating season, it's time to inspect and test our gear before we hit the water.

The Board has canceled the April 29th meeting.   Although we expect the economy to begin to open up in early May, we have also canceled the May 27.  Our meetings aren’t critical and better to be safe than sorry.  We sure hope to see everyone on June 24.  We will have a lot to talk about.
