We all enjoy the outdoors, taking a day trip out on the lake or the ocean, but with the worldwide covid-19 pandemic comes many questions. Are we still allowed to go out boating? What are the rules, restrictions, and regulations? Since many parks, boating access areas, launches, docks, and marinas are closed or restricted, many of us feel trapped; where can we go to enjoy a day of boating? In this blog, we will answer most of your questions.
Most boating access areas and marinas are closed or restricted; areas where the spread of covid-19 is high or increasing, will most likely be closed. First, do research on all marinas in your area, contact them to find out if they are open for boaters, and if there are any special requirements.
Yes, you can! The only family within the same household, unfortunately, you cannot accommodate any guest. Keep in mind this is for your own health and safety, not only yours but your family as well.
Yes, it is safe when you follow the rules. The only boat with your household, do not invite friends. Boating is safe and a great way to practice social distancing, just you and your family and your boat, chances of you getting into contact with other boats are unlikely, and besides, you know not to get into close contact with anyone other than your family. Where your mask if there are people in the area or while you wait your turn to launch, and keep your distance.
Emergencies are always possible; even when we try our best to avoid them, they can happen at any given time. Before you go out boating, make sure of the following:
Since it is only you and your family that went out boating because no guests are allowed, your boat should be safe, but being extra cautious never hurts.
Avoid chemicals like bleach, as this can harm your boat surface! Wash your boat with Marine disinfect products
The same boating rules and regulations apply; the only difference now is to take extra precaution and safety measures to keep you and your family safe and those around you. Check the rules and regulations with the Marina or boating access areas, as each will have additional rules applied to protect themselves and their employees, you might have to launch at certain times or book your time to launch, and there might be a closing time, meaning you need to be out of the water a specific time.
Basic rules that must be applied everywhere.
Spending quality time with your family during this covid-19 pandemic is vital. Spending time out on the water is good for the mind, body, and soul! Being outdoors and inhaling fresh air, feel the wind breeze, and living marine life is an excellent way to appreciate life and nature! Spending all this time indoors, isolating ourselves shows you how much fun the outdoors are and how important it is for us to appreciate every moment! Have fun with your family and enjoy your day out boating!
Rules and regulations are in place to protect you and those around you! The covid-19 pandemic is a difficult time for the whole world; let’s fight this together by following the rules, keeping our distance, sanitize and wearing our mask!
