OPP Says Prepare for Boating Season

The OPP says before putting your boat on the water, check all lifesaving, distress and safety equipment and make sure that it is in the boat and that it works. The OPP SAVE Team recommends boaters wear a life jacket or personal floatation device at all times. Once you fall into the water it’s too late. If you are operating a motorized boat after sunset and before sunrise, or in restricted visibility, navigation lights are required. Check them before you go on the water to make sure they work. A friendly reminded that drinking and driving offences apply to boats. Your Automobile Driver’s Licence will be suspended if you are charged and convicted. To be certain of what equipment you need in your boat, get the free Safe Boating Guide from Transport Canada or call the Boating Safety phone line at 1-800-267-6687 or visit
