C.  Passenger Safety
from help. Fish hook accidents or minor cuts and abra-
sions may  be the  most serious mishaps  on board  a
boat but you should also learn the proper procedures
and be ready  to deal with  the truly serious problems
like mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, excessive bleeding,
hypothermia, and burns. First aid literature and courses
are available through most Red Cross chapters.
Before getting underway, show all  passengers where
emergency and safety  equipment is stowed, and  ex-
plain how to use it. Everyone aboard should wear rub-
ber-soled shoes which resist slipping on wet surfaces.
While underway, passengers should remain seated in-
side the deck rails and gates. Do not allow passengers
to drag their  feet or hands  in the water.   Always use
handholds and other safety hardware to prevent falls.
All nonswimmers, poor  swimmers and small children
should wear PFDs at all times.
F.  Operation By Minors
Minors should always be supervised by an adult when-
ever operating a boat. Many states have laws regard-
ing the  minimum age  and licensing  requirements of
minors. Be sure to check local laws or contact the state
boating authorities for information.

and continue to  turn even after the engine  is
shut off. Do not allow anyone near the propeller

by the U.S. Coast Guard.   Navigating a boat is much
the same as driving  an automobile.  Operating either
one responsibly means  complying with a set of  rules
intended to  prevent accidents.   Just as  you assume
other car drivers know what they are doing, other boat-
ers assume you know what you are doing. Information
regarding navigational rules and the “Rules of the Road”
are discussed in further detail in C-1 & C-2 of the next
Never approach or use ladder  when motor is
running. Severe injury or death will result from

H.  Voluntary Inspections
State boating officials in many states or the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliaries offer courtesy  inspections to check
out your craft. They will check for compliance with safety
standards and  required safety equipment.   You  may
voluntarily consent to one of these inspections, and you
are allowed to make  corrections without prosecution.
Check with the appropriate state agency or the Coast
Guard Auxiliary for details.
