For many, swimming and boating are synonymous with summer fun. However, there are many electrical hazards that come along with these leisurely summer activities. Just like your home, it is critical that you have your boat inspected regularly by a licensed electrician and that you are familiar with the electrical system so you can identify and correct any potential hazards. Along with the safety of your boat’s electrical system, it is critical for the safety of boat operators and swimmers to understand the hazard of electric shock drowning. ESFI’s Boating and Marina Safety resources have the necessary tools to ensure that fun in the sun doesn’t give way to an emergency at sea.
