Handy Sticker is Great for Boat Helm Station

The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety has made it a little easier for Spanish-speaking boaters to check the "rules of the road" with a new Boat Handling Guide decal in Spanish that can be affixed on the helm. The decal is free to boat clubs, marinas or other groups in quantities up to 200, and is available at http://www.BoatUS.com/foundation/brochure The weatherproof decal gives examples of the most common types of navigational markers, rules of the road and right of way illustrations, and an explanation of horn signals.

"Our Boat Handling Guide decal is the most popular item that boaters request," said BoatU.S. Foundation Program Manager Amanda Suttles. "And no matter what language you speak, it's great having one on the helm for a quick reference," she added.

The Foundation also offers Spanish language brochures including: Navegación en Aguas Frías, which discusses hypothermia and safety tips for cold weather boating; a Chalecos Salvavidas brochure that explains the types and use of life jackets; an El Alcohol y la Navigación brochure that explains the dangers of drinking and boating; and a brochure on environmentally friendly boating, La Rutina de Limpieza: 21 Ideas Para Navegar Mejor.

The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit education and research organization primarily funded by the voluntary contributions of the 650,000 members of BoatU.S. The Foundation operates more than a dozen programs including the only accredited, free, online general boating safety course, a low-cost EPIRB rental program, the "Help Stop the Drops" national clean fueling campaign, and a free kid's Life Jacket Loaner Program. It has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants for nonprofit groups for boating safety and environmental projects.
