Nautical Notes

In April/May of 2013, BoatUS, one of the largest boating organizations in the United States published an on-line article that laid out a great Pre-Launch Safety Checklist as well as having an accompanying 6-minute video. It even features an app that can be downloaded on an Android or iOS in order to allow people to take the checklist with them to their boat. Pretty Cool!!!

Just follow this hyperlink to the BoatUS website. While its content is a couple of years old, the noted items are timeless.
