4 New Year’s Resolutions for Boat Lovers in the Triangle

January 1, 2017

The new year is quickly approaching and Triangle boating enthusiasts are already preparing for its coming! Typically, the new year begins with new resolutions for how to improve our own personal lives as well as the lives around us. So, what can boat lovers near the Falls Lake area pledge to do to make 2017 a great year on the water?Jordan Lake Boat Rental in North Carolina Our friendly staff and awesome patrons of Motor Boatin’ resolve to:
  • Conduct Regular Drills with Our Crews. Whether it’s an abandon ship or man overboard drill, we can never be too prepared for these instances should they arise. Let’s plan to have regular drills and run-throughs so that way all crew members are ready in case of emergency.
  • Have Our Boats Prepared to Launch. Picture this: it’s a hot summer day and there’s a long line of boats preparing to launch from the ramp. But, one after the other is held up because they weren’t 100% ready to go, and loose ends need tying up before they can jet off to enjoy the water. How about we make sure everything is good to go before getting to this point; this means less wait time for others and everyone is happy!
  • Not Drink While Boating. This is crucial not only for our own sakes and for our passengers, but for the others boating and enjoying water activities around us. It’s illegal to operate a boat while intoxicated, just like it is illegal to drink and drive a car. Instead of posing a risk to ourselves and others, we pledge to not drink while enjoying the open water.
  • Wear Our Lifejackets. This should be a no-brainer, but it’s tempting to ditch the lifejacket to have more mobility and soak up more sun. However, this step in safety is important, especially for younger passengers or those who can’t swim. Let’s try to be mindful and remember to wear our lifejackets often.
2017 is going to be a great year here in the Triangle and for those planning to enjoy Falls Lake and all it has to offer! Interested in checking our rental options such as a jet ski or pontoon boat? Contact us at Motor Boatin’ today and we’ll make sure you sail smoothly into the new year!
