Many boats and PWCs have burned to the water line needlessly.

To help prevent a fire:

  • Don't mix the three ingredients required to ignite a fire—fuel, oxygen, and heat.
  • Make sure ventilation systems have been installed and are used properly.
  • Maintain the fuel system to avoid leaks, and keep the bilges clean.
  • Follow the safe fueling procedures.
