Every Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET, a new “Fall 2020 Safe Boating” title will debut on America’s Boating Channel’s website homepage and YouTube channel.
“Visual Distress Signals – Problems to Avoid,” the ninth video in the new series, premiering on November 27, covers failures to comply with regulations for carriage of various types of pyrotechnic and non-pyrotechnic visual distress signaling devices and improper uses of them. Next week’s episode will be “Visual Distress Signals — Doing it Right.”
As Americans have increasingly turned to boating as a recreational outlet during the coronavirus pandemic, the need for boater education has become more and more evident. Screening safe boating videos is an excellent way for boaters to prepare for safer experiences on the water.
The service recently completed its debut of Season Four videos including “Boater Education,” “Engine Cut-Off Devices,” “Life Jacket Care,” “Behavioral Consequences,” Introducing ATONS” (aids to navigation), “Dispelling BUI Myths“ (boating under the influence), “Life Jacket Labels,” “Electric Shock Drowning (ESD),” and “Social Distancing for Boaters.”
