Be Safe This 4th of July
The week of 4th of July can be one of the greatest weeks during the summer. Cold beer, food on the grill, boats in the water, and of course fantastic fireworks. That all being said every year all over the country the overpopulation of boats, along with alcohol consumption, and general disorientation in the night causes fatal accidents.
The article above dates back to a tragic accident on 4th of July in 2012, where three children had their lives cut short, in Oyster Bay, NY. After reading the article it is clear that the main cause of this accident was overcapacity. Unfortunately this is a common theme on a holiday out on the water. All of your friends know that you have a boat, and everyone wants prime real-estate for the fireworks. So why not, a few extra people wont hurt, Right? Wrong! Every year boats capsize for this very reason, and all too often it's the children onboard who fall victim.
We are all on the water to have a good time. Be responsible, know what your boats capacity is, and don't go beyond it. When you have people on your boat, you are responsible for their safety, EVERY SINGLE PERSON.
Everyone here at Untold Horizon LLC wants to wish you all a happy 4th of July, but more importantly we want you to have a safe holiday. Be careful of the crowded harbors, watch your wakes, and please only take the amount of people that your boat was designed to carry.
