Fishing from boats can be made safer through the following steps:
Update your boating knowledge
Running out of fuel is one of the most common reasons for requiring emergency services.
Ensure that your fuel is fresh.
In an electrical storm, get off
the lake and out of your boat.
When in doubt, wait it out!
Put the load in the center of the boat and don't overload.
When travelling, take waves on the forequarters.
It is generally better to stay with the boat if it does overturn.
