Boat Safety

Do you have a swim ladder? Even if you do, have you ever used it?

You would be surprised to find out how many people with boats have never swam from them and have never used their ladder, opting instead to go to a beach in the tender.

If you were to fall off your boat, add the complication of alcohol, night time, or a current taking the boat away from you things can become serious very fast.

Firstly, make sure you have a ladder and it is functional. Then while you are anchored or at a marina -with others around to help should something go wrong- step off the back, make sure you fold your ladder down whilst in the water, and climb back up.
If you can’t do it in a safe environment, what chance do you have in an emergency. There are a lot of ladders on the market with styles and prices to suit everyone and every boat. Give us a call and let us make your boating safer.
