Boat Safety in Charleston SC


It is still rather warm in the Charleston SC area and folks are still out in their boats. Here are some safety reminders and tips for safe boating:

·         Know the federal, state, and local laws and regulations for South Carolina waters.

·         Know the Rules of the Road.

·         Know the water temperature. Might be valuable information in case of an emergency that finds you in the water. This will be even more important as cooler weather arrives.

·         Plan your excursion in advance and let someone know where you are going.

·         Even the smallest boat needs a fire extinguisher. Boats can catch on fire!

·         Have distress signals like flags or flares.

·         Have a fully charged cell phone.

·         Store in your cell phone the name of a boat towing service and the Charleston Coast Guard Emergency phone 1-843-740-7050.
