I understand that when I meet another boat head-on I should steer to the right (starboard). 

I Agree

I understand that I must yield (give way) to all boats under sail. 

I Agree

I understand that under Federal and/or State law it is a crime to operate a boat while persons are sitting on the front (bow), sides (gunwales), rear (stern), or swim platform. This behavior is considered grossly negligent operation of a boat.

I Agree

I will not operate this boat or allow any- one else to operate this boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 

I Agree

I will not permit swimming, diving, sliding, or jumping from or near the boat unless the boat motor is turned off, the keys are removed, and I have counted to ten to allow the propeller time to stop spinning. 

I Agree

I will check to make sure that the water is deep enough before allowing head-first diving from the boat. 

I Agree

I will instruct my passengers never to dive or jump off of a moving boat. 

I Agree

I confirm that rental company staff have informed me about local hazards such as shallow water, submerged objects, currents, and weather conditions. A list is attached.

I understand that five short blasts of a horn or whistle signal danger or need for assistance.

I Agree

PONTOON / DECK BOAT

I Agree

I will take a head count to make sure all passengers are present and ac-counted for before starting the motor. I understand that it is particularly dangerous to sit on the front of the platform of this boat, because a slip between the pontoons will "funnel" a passenger into the boat propeller.
