The weekly online magazine show, designed to help recreational boaters cope while sheltering at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus, had over a thousand initial views of its preview and first episode.
The second episode of “America’s Boating Channel LIVE“ will premiere Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 PM EDT on AmericasBoatingChannel.com and America’s Boating Channel’s YouTube channel.
The program will include segments on an affordable recreational boat simulator, life jacket disinfection, and an interactive online seminar on GPS.
Viewers will receive tips on how to pass the time with boating motion pictures, music, television programs, and books, plus how to create nautical crafts; learn about a new benefit of joining United States Power Squadrons® – America’s Boating Club®; and keep their sense of humor.
The show is not only for boaters, it’s also by boaters, with volunteers from around the country serving remotely as segment contributors and on-camera talent.
Episode Two contributors include Mary Catherine Berube, Gary Cheney, Gene Danko, Megan Humphrey, Cheryl Lowry, Louie Ojeda, John O’Reilly, Brian Pinkston, Andy Sumberg, Holly Tompkins, Wendell Uglene, Chuck Wells, and Jim Zeigler.
America’s Boating Channel videos are now enjoying increased viewership as Americans stay home to protect themselves and others from the COVID-19 pandemic. Screening boater education videos is an excellent way for boaters to prepare for safer experiences on the water.
Production of America’s Boating Channel’s fourth season of original boating safety videos is now nearing completion. This year’s new titles, which will launch later in the Spring, include “Boater Education,” “Engine Shut-Off Devices,” “Life Jacket Care,” “Cold Weather Boating,” “Behavioral Consequences,” Introducing ATONS” (aids to navigation), “Dispelling BUI Myths“ (boating under the influence), “Life Jacket Labels,” and “Electric Shock Drowning (ESD).”
