Cold Water Boating
While the air temps are warming up, the water temps remain very cold. So as we begin the 2018 boating season, we should always be prepared for the possibility of an unwanted dip in the water – from falling overboard or worse, a sinking vessel. I’m sharing this helpful website from BoatU.S. Foundation as well as their handy infographic below. Remember, cold water removes heat from the body 25-30% faster than cold air, leaving hypothermia to set in very quickly. Always go boating with a safety mindset!
