Understand Alcohol Impairment
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. Alcohol is a major contributor to boating accidents and fatalities.
Drinking while boating is a choice. The best way to minimize the risk of an accident is to make the wise choice— Don't drink and boat!
