What increases the effects of alcohol while boating?
A good rule to follow, when operating a PWC, is to use 1/3 of the fuel to operate, 1/3 to get back to shore and to save 1/3 as a fuel reserve to be used in case of an emergency.
What is the 1/3 rule for boats?
What will increase the effects of alcohol and drugs when boating?
Put out all smoking materials and secure your boat to the dock. Turn off engine(s), electronics, and extinguish all open flames. Keep the nozzle in contact with the edge of the fill to prevent build up of static electricity to prevent sparking. Don’t top off your tank.
