Boating Safety Certification
I am not a big advocate of lots of regulation in society. In the past I did not like the idea of making people have a license or safety certificate to operate a watercraft. With increasing numbers of boats and other watercraft and more accidents I think an argument can be made that the time has come for regulation. I don't think that it has to be overly burdensome but I believe that the benefits would outweigh the burden. Lives and bodies will be saved with a simple safe boating course and testing. See the attached article for an example of what it is getting like out on the water.....wow. Have a safe boating day!!
