How To Boat Cautiously While Having Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES!
There is typically a lot happening at once out on the water during a nice, summer weekend at the lake. Keep in mind, you may come across patrons kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, etc. Be courteous and boat at an appropriate speed. Can you imagine how many boating accidents are caused simply by the boater not paying attention? Too many.
ALWAYS HAVE ENOUGH LIFE JACKETS ONBOARD AND EASY TO GET TO.
Not only do you legally have to have enough life jackets on board for everyone aboard the boat, but this is for your own safety. You may be a GREAT swimmer, but if you do get into a boating accident and find yourself stranded, you'll be thankful these are on board.
NEVER BOAT WHILE INTOXICATED.
This should go without saying, but you should never under any circumstance operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. There are so many services available if you need a sober boat captain at the Lake of the Ozarks. It just isn't worth the risk. Not only would you be putting yourself in danger, but you'd be facing extensive jail time and fines and putting others at risk too.
