When Boating

  • Always moor you boat with a chain or cable. Use a good lock and secure the cable/chain around something that cannot be moved or that will not allow the cable/chain to be lifted over it or torn loose
  • Before leaving your boat moored, secure all removable items. Never leave fishing equipment unattended
  • Consider leaving your engine out of commission when you are away - remove the rotor, install a hidden cut-off switch, drain the fuel, remove a spark plug or the propeller
  • Never leave your keys aboard - even in a "hidden" place
  • Never overload your boat beyond recommended capacity
  • Secure outboard motors with special transom bolts or clamping screw locks
