When you are out on Lake Lanier it's a great idea for the adult who is driving the boat to give the kids a safety lesson before leaving the dock. He or she should make it a point to tell them that there can only be one captain, and it's important to follow his or her orders quickly and quietly.
Here are a few basic rules to consider:
- No running on deck.
- No sitting on the side rails, foredeck, dashboard, sunpad or swim platform when the boat is under way.
- Advise them to leave "one hand for themselves and one for the boat" by using grab-rails to steady themselves if the boat rocks.
- Instruct children not to walk around while the boat is in motion.
Have a great last few weeks on beautiful Lake Lanier y'all!
