Have A Fun & Safe Memorial Day Weekend On Your Watercraft

Memorial Day Weekends is one of the busiest boating weekends at the Lake of the Ozarks. Iguana Boat Sales wants to ensure you have a fun and accident-free time this holiday weekend. This year, National Safe Boating Week is May 20 - 26, which falls right before Memorial Day Weekend. In observance of this week and in preparation for Memorial Day Weekend, Iguana Boat Sales wants to focus on some safe boating practices you can do to help make sure you have a fun and safe time boating this holiday weekend.


Before You Depart

Just like you would a car before a road trip, it's a good idea to ensure your boat is in proper working order before taking it out onto the water.

- Check fuel levels.
- Check engine for leakage, excess water or heavy odors, as these could be signs of a serious issue.
- Ensure all lights are functioning and check for any electrical issues.
- Test all communication devices.
- Run the blowers to evacuate fumes and vapors from the bilge.
- Use a floating bobber for your boat and car keys in case they go overboard.

Before taking off, share your plans with friends or family. Include your destination and expected return time. In addition, check the local weather, water reports and boating forecasts. Don't head out if there will be bad weather.


While Out On The Lake

In addition to making sure your boat is in proper working condition, it's important to make sure everyone on board follows safety precautions. Whether you are the driver or just along for the ride, everyone plays an important role in boating safety.

- Don't exceed the number of passengers allowed on your watercraft.
- Ensure the engine is shut off while passengers are loading and unloading, especially during activities like tubing, water skiing, water boarding and swimming.
- Ensure there are enough life jackets for everyone on board. Always wear your life jacket while tubing, water skiing and wake boarding. In addition, children should wear their life jacket at all times.
- Don't drink and drive. If you do decide to consume alcohol while boating, ensure there is a sober driver.
- To reduce the chance of falling out of the watercraft, ensure all passengers remain seated while the boat is in motion.


Stay Safe This Memorial Day Weekend

Before getting in your boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, make sure you take the appropriate measures to ensure your safety on the water. By being prepared, paying attention to the weather forecast, and stocking your boat with the required items, your lake outing should not only be safe, but enjoyable! Iguana Boat Sales delivers exceptional value, exclusive selection, and above all outstanding customer service. We have selected some of the best boat brands to offer you the right combination of price, quality, and value. Visit our showroom in Osage Beach, if you are in the market for a used or new boat at the Lake of the Ozarks. Our boat gurus look forward to showing you our inventory.

Be Safe Out On The Water This Boating Season

Boating season at the Lake of the Ozarks is gearing up. Iguana Boat Sales wants to make sure your trip out on the water is fun and accident free. We've put together a list of things you can do to help you stay safer while enjoying your time out on the Lake of the Ozarks.




1. Check The Weather

Before heading out onto the water, be sure to check the local weather. TV and radio forecasts can be a good source of information. In Missouri, the weather can be quite unpredictable at times, so if you notice darkening clouds, rough changing winds, sudden drops of temperatures, it may be best to start heading back to shore.

2. Have A Departure Checklist

Proper boating safety includes being prepared for any possible situation while out on the water. If you have a predeparture checklist, it could help you make sure nothing is overlooked or forgotten. Some things to include on your list are:

- Top off fuel tanks.
- Check the engine oil and coolant levels.
- Check bilges are dry and that pumps are not running excessively.
- Make sure all instrument lights are working.
- Have at least one fire extinguisher and make sure it's accessible.

3. Use Common Sense

One of the most important parts of boating safety is to use your common sense. This means operating at a safe speed, especially in crowded areas, staying alert at all times and steering clear of large vessels and watercraft. Also, be respectful of buoys and other navigational aids. You do not want to be involved in a boating accident that could have been avoided, so be sure you are aware of your surrounding while operating your watercraft.

4. Designate A "Skipper"

Be sure that more than one person on board is familiar with all aspects of your boat's handling, operations and general boating safety.  In case the driver of the boat is injured or unable to drive, it's important that someone else can follow the proper safety rules to get everyone else back to shore safely.

5. Let Someone Else Know Your Plans

Whether it's a family member or staff at your local marina, always make sure someone else on land knows your boating plans. This should include where you're going and how long you're going to be gone. Some other information your designated person should know is:

- Name, address and phone number
- Name and phone number of other passengers
- Boat type and registration information
- Trip itinerary
- Types of communication and signal equipment onboard.

6. Wear Your Life Jacket

Wearing your life jacket is a simple life-saving strategic that's also extremely effective. Boats are required to have onboard a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket for every passenger. Life jackets come in many sizes, are lightweight and are comfortable for any boating activity. Set a good example for any children that are also on the watercraft, as they will be more willing to wear their life jacket if you are too.

7. Don't Drink & Drive

Just like you wouldn't drink and drive a car, you should drink and operate a watercraft. Boating under the influence (BUI) of drugs or alcohol affects judgment, vision, balance and coordination. These impairments can increase the risk of being in a boating accident, which could cause harm to the passengers and boat operator, not to mention other people outside of your own watercraft. Alcohol contributes to a third of all recreational boating fatalities.

Before getting in your boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, make sure you take the appropriate measures to ensure your safety on the water. By being prepared, paying attention to the weather forecast, and stocking your boat with the required items, your lake outing should not only be safe, but enjoyable! Iguana Boat Sales delivers exceptional value, exclusive selection, and above all outstanding customer service. We have selected some of the best boat brands to offer you the right combination of price, quality, and value. Visit our showroom in Osage Beach, if you are in the market for a used or new boat at the Lake of the Ozarks. We look forward to showing you our inventory.
