Area Tent & Canvas LLC's Kayak/Canoe Safety Tips

Posted by: Area Tent & Canvas on 09/01/2011

1. Start your boating experience by knowing boat throughly, including a water safety course.

2. Plan ahead by filing a float plan with who will know where you will be and when you intend to return.

3. Always paddle with a companion which includes wearing an appropriate life jacket.

4. Don't drink while paddling since it impairs your motor judgement and motor skills.

5. Always be in command of your canoe/kayak--knowing how to navigate around underwater obstacles.

6. Stay low, keeping your balance, learn how to exit your boat --hang onand "righting" it after you capsize.

7. Finally, understand about weather conditions and hypothermia dangers so you won't become just another statistic.

Canoeing and Kayaking are exciting and challenging new ways to enjoy the water but as Benjamin Franklin once said..."An ounce of prevention--is worth a pound of cure!" BE SAFE and call Area tent & Canvas for all your canvas outdoor/boat cover and tops needs.
