The tragic boating accident that occurred recently in the Manatee Pocket reminds us of how fragile life is and how quickly things can change, especially when boating.
It is so easy for us all to take for granted our safety while on the water. Boats have more and faster power, we get distracted enjoying our friends and overlook using our PFD.
Next time out, please wear your PFD and watch your speed. Think safety.
You may recall trying to make a habit of using your seat belt when it became mandatory. Now it is automatic.
PFD's save lives!
Remember, on the water it is about how fast you go for the conditions.
Our prayers for the families.
