Boating Safety Tips – Travelers Insurance

Every time you take your boat and/or personal watercraft out on the water is a new experience. No matter how many trips you have under your belt, it is best to freshen up on boat safety before each voyage. Be sure you and your passengers follow these safe boating tips and practices to help promote an incident-free return from each outing.

Before Setting Out on Your Boat

Ensure that your boat and/or personal watercraft is operating properly before heading out onto the water. Follow this pre-departure checklist to help you avoid any potential problems.

  • Share your float plan with a friend or relative. Be sure to include your destination and expected time of return.
  • Check fuel levels and add as necessary.
  • Check your engine. For in-board engines, open the hatch to look for fuel or fluid (oil, coolant, etc.) leakage or excess water in the bilge, or the lowest section inside of a boat. For outboard engines, check the fuel system for leaks or heavy gas odor. Excessive fuel vapors from either engine type can be a sign of a serious problem.
  • Ensure all lights are functioning and in place.
  • Check for any electrical issues such as loose, disconnected or corroded conductors.
  • Test radio/communications devices.
  • Run blowers to evacuate fumes and vapors from the bilge prior to starting your engine.
  • Attach your boat and vehicle keys to a floating bobber.
  • Check the local weather, sea reports and boating forecasts. As the operator of the boat, you have a responsibility to pay attention to the weather and should not head out if adverse conditions are expected.
  • Have an emergency/evacuation plan in place, and go over it with your passengers.
  • Review the vessel’s controls, location of personal flotation devices and location of fire extinguishers with your passengers.

What to Take Aboard

No matter how careful you, your passengers and fellow boaters may be, accidents can still happen. In the event of an incident, you should always have these items with you while you are out on your boat:

  • Boat certificate and registration.
  • Towing policy paperwork (if you have one).
  • Personal flotation device (PFD) —with protective packaging removed—for each passenger.
  • Charged and functioning fire extinguisher.
  • Fully-stocked boating emergency/survival kit.

Staying Safe on the Water

Having a good time while out on the water includes getting everyone back to shore safely. Whether you are navigating or just along for the ride, everyone plays a critical role in boating safety. Be sure you and your passengers practice these safe boating behaviors on every outing:

  • Do not exceed the number of passengers safely allowed on your vessel.
  • Make sure all passengers remain in their proper, seated positions on the boat while it is in motion.
  • Children should wear a PFD at all times – this is required by law in some states, so be sure to check local laws, rules and regulations. Adults should consider wearing them as well, and at a minimum, they should be readily available.
  • Shut off the engine while passengers are loading and unloading for recreational activities such as tubing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and swimming.
  • Monitor gauges at the helm (voltage, temperature, fuel) to help promote safe operation and identify any issues as soon as possible.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, like water conditions and other vessels, to help you react to any potential dangers in a timely manner.
  • The primary and backup operator (if you have one) should abstain from consuming any alcoholic beverages prior to or during the outing.

Boating Prep Tips from Travelers Insurance

How to Help Prepare Your Boat for Spring

Travelers Insurance

Couple on a boat

Are you one of the millions of boaters with spring fever, itching to get your vessel out of winter storage and back onto the water? If so, be sure to take the time to properly de-winterize and prepare your boat before taking it out for its first voyage of the season.

Having a spring ritual that includes recommended inspection, tune-up and cleaning of your boat before setting out on your first trip can help prevent a host of problems that could keep you off the water later in the season — not to mention, help keep you and everyone aboard safe during your adventures.

Following are some tips to help get your boat as ready as you are to hit the water this year.

Prepare for the Season Ahead

Use some of those pre-season days to plan for brighter days of boating ahead:

  • Take a boat safety course, and obtain your boating certificate (if you have not already).
  • Read your owner’s manual and consult the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance guidelines.
  • Familiarize (or re-familiarize) yourself with your boat — its components, features and safety precautions.

Complete Your Pre-Launch Inspection and Maintenance

To help ensure a smooth, safe start to the boating season, have an American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC)-certified technician or mechanic perform the recommended maintenance on your vessel. Whether or not you get a professional tune-up, be sure to complete the following checklist before leaving the dock:

  • Inspect all of the safety equipment on board, including fire extinguishers, flares, personal flotation devices and first-aid kits, and repair, recharge and restock them as necessary.
  • Check all lights on your boat to make sure they are in place and operating properly.
  • Open the engine compartment to check for excess water in the bilge.
  • Check for any electrical issues, such as loose, disconnected or corroded conductors.
  • Check that the battery is properly secured to the vessel.
  • Check the fuel tank for leaks, and ensure there is proper ventilation.
  • Check the fuel filters to make sure no water is present.
  • Fill your tank with the freshest, highest-quality fuel available.
  • Change and check the oil level before starting the boat for the first time.
  • If you will be towing your vessel to its launch point, you will also need to properly inspect and maintain your trailer prior to your first outing.

Get In, On and Out of the Water Safely

Once all tasks on your pre-launch checklist are complete, you can start your engine and get out on the water. It is important on your first, and every trip of the season, to:

  • Follow safe launching practices.
  • Monitor the engine temperature to make sure it is not overheating.
  • Monitor the cooling system to make sure it is operating correctly.
  • Ensure you and your passengers know and follow safe boating practices.

Remember: Every Vessel is Unique

The work required to get your boat water-ready will depend on whether it is used in fresh or salt water, its size, manufacturer, model, and the state in which it is registered. Be sure to get the information you need, then develop and follow the right spring ritual to help ensure every trip of the boating season is safe and fun for all.
