ability to move.
A. Drugs and Alcohol

boaters. Federal laws prohibit operating a
boat under the influence of alcohol or
C. Passenger Safety
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 PFD’s at all times.
Do not use drugs or drink alcohol while operating a boat.
Like driving a car, driving a boat requires sober, atten-
tive care. Operating a boat while intoxicated or under
the influence of drugs is not only dangerous, but it is
also a Federal offense carrying a significant penalty.
These laws are vigorously enforced. The use of drugs
and alcohol, singly or in combination, decreases reac-
tion time, impedes judgement, impairs vision, and in-
hibits your ability to operate a boat.
