Boating Industry/Water Sports Foundation Safe Boating Podcast
Join David Gee, host of Boating Industry Insider, as he discusses safe boating; a big – and important – topic for those who build boats, sell boats, service boats, or for any of us who even board a boat. He is joined by Jim Emmons, Grant Director for the Water Sports Foundation, the non-profit educational arm of the Water Sports Industry Associaton, as well as Pam Dillon, a career-long boating professional, who is Educational and Standards Director for the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators. They are a national non-profit that works to develop public policy for recreational boating safety in all 50 states. They talk about the latest Coast Guard report on boating injuries and accidents, life jacket use, alcohol consumption on the water, the importance of being weather aware and what the industry can do to mitigate prop-related accidents.
