National Safe Boating Week
May 19-25 is National Safe Boating Week:
Wear Your Life Jacket: Life jackets save lives, & IL law requires life jackets or life vests (personal flotation devices, PFD’S) be available for each person aboard a boat or other watercraft. State law also requires anyone under age of 13 must wear a life jacket while aboard any watercraft under 26 feet in length at all times the boat is underway, unless below deck in an enclosed cabin or on private property. IL law also requires persons of any age to wear a PFD while operating a personal watercraft.
Remember: The life you save might be your own…..Good Fishing!
