The Safe Boating Council Wants You to Be Extra Careful as We Approach the Fall Season.

 

When it comes to boating in the fall, Ian Gilson, the director of the Canadian Safe Boating Council, says you should be prepared for colder temperatures while on the water even if it’s a nice day. He explains the thing that people have to keep in mind is in the fall you can still get some really nice warm days and people are tending to go out in shorts and a t-shirt but the thing is the water has been cooled significantly and should you get into a situation where wake from another boat or waves kick up and you get swamped or into the water all of a sudden your 22 or 23 degree day goes into 14 and 15 degrees water and that can cause some problems.

Gilson says that while boating can help people see the best of Canada, you have to be careful.
