Water skiing, kneeboarding, wakeboarding or riding a
towed, inflatable apparatus are some of the more popu-
lar water  sports.  Taking  part in any  water sport re-
quires increased safety awareness by the participant
and the boat operator. If you have never pulled some-
one behind your boat before, it is a good idea to spend
some hours as an observer, working with and learning
from an experienced driver.  It is also important to be
aware of the skill and experience of the person being
pulled.  Always  have a   second person on board  to
observe the person in the water so the driver can con-
centrate on operating the boat.

by diver down float. See Figure B16.

set of safety precautions to observe in boating. The fol-

and swimmers, out of channels, and in water free
