6 Watercraft Safety Tips from the Hunter's Heroes Foundation

The summer months are the perfect time to get out on the water. Whether you have a jet ski, kayak, fishing boat or speed boat, there are plenty of things that can go wrong if you are not conscious of your surroundings. The Hunter's Heroes Foundation has put together six watercraft safety tips that everyone should follow when they are on the water this summer to avoid a tragedy.

Monitor the Forecast

Before you head out on the water you need to monitor the forecast. You should never go for a boat ride or for a row in your kayak when the weather is iffy. Even if storms aren't rolling in for a couple of hours it's best to just avoid the water altogether. If the forecast is calling for storms the tides and current can be affected well before they arrive.
