Alcohol impairment increases the likelihood of accidents—for both passengers and boat operators. Always designate non-drinking boaters to operate the boat and to act as an observer if your group plans to consume alcohol. Do not allow your skipper to operate if he or she is drinking. According to Canadian statistics, alcohol is a major contributor to pleasure craft accidents and fatalities.

Don't Drink and Boat!
The best thing you can do for your safety and the safety of your passengers and other boaters is simple—Don't drink and boat!
