For Boaters, That Change is More Than Just Physical Distancing. You need to be more prepared before and after you head out onto the water.
COVID-19 has changed the way we do almost everything and that includes boating.
Social distancing at launch ramps and docks, no more rafting together and only having immediate family members on board. But that’s not all. More than ever, you have to be more independent to reduce pressures that you might put on rescue personnel and resources. Check your boat before you go, make sure you have enough fuel, load your boat properly and keep a watch on the weather. Getting through COVID-19 is up to all of us, being a responsible boater is up to you alone.
