The new boating season has begun and the Ohio government is urging you to be safe while having a good time this summer. One way you can do that is by taking advantage of the free vessel safety inspections being offered by the Ohio Department of National Resources (ODNR) Division of Watercraft and its boating partners.
These inspections, which are free to the public, help increase safety awareness. Watercraft officers will provide the written inspections so that boat-owners may make any necessary or recommended improvements. Many Ohio residents will be getting their boats out soon, to take advantage of warmer weather and a new boating season, and keeping their boating trips safe should be at the top of their priority list.
Inspections usually look at things such as fire extinguishers, horns, navigational lights, and distress signals, and life jackets and life vests, which according to Ohio.gov must be, "in good condition and readily accessible to all boat occupants."
