Boating safety, inspections in New Bern NC

Here in New Bern North Carolina with all of the beautiful water ways you have to get in to boating, sooner or late. Safety's a big thing in boating and a good inspection simply makes your chances of having a problem a lot less.
Members of a New Bern group hope they can reduce the number of accidents in area waters by providing free boat inspections Aug. 16 and 17.
The Cape Lookout Sail and Power Squadron, a part of the U.S. Power Squadron that formed out of the Boston Yacht Club in 1914 to help stranded vessels off the New England coast, offers courses in public boating, sailing, engine maintenance, navigation, marine electronics, seamanship, safety and other subjects. The organization has about 13 certified inspectors who will check boats at the Lawson Creek Park boat ramp.
The squadron will inspect boats at the Lawson Creek Park boat launch from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 16 and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 17. Call 637-1941 for more information about the inspections.
"All of these fellows have been longtime boaters," he said. "They know what to look for."
We are looking forward to a good turn out as this will improve all of ours safety.
Wishing you calm sees!
