In California and other States, boating can be a fun activity for family and friends. Boating can also be a dangerous activity and even a deadly one when a boat capsizes. Because of these dangers and others, it is important to have safety precautions in place including but not limited to life jackets, life preservers, inflatable boats (room permitting and when available), first aid training, and captain / operator training.
