Lyttelton-based navigational safety officer Gary Manch has some simple tips to help you keep safe on the water this summer Trevor Crowe’s been involved with cars for a while. You can benefit from his experience at... IF YOU’VE been keeping up with the news lately, you may have noticed stories about the road toll creeping up, in spite of the efforts of regulatory authorities to make our roads safer. As I was thinking about this, it came to mind that even though motor vehicles and boats are completely different, they have one big similarity – they are controlled by humans. This, unfortunately, is the reason we tend to have a lot of incidents, both on the water and off. Mechanical failure rarely leads to injury or death – it’s more often the behaviour of drivers that is the problem. When you think about it, one moment of inattention or carelessness on the water can have disastrous consequences not only for the operator – who makes the mistake – but also for the innocent victims who are out enjoying the water. As Environment Canterbury’s navigation safety officer, I have no control over what happens on the roads but I do have the ability to try and change behaviour on our waterways. As we head into the 2017/18 boating season, here are some tips I would ask you to take on board. •First up, learn the boating rules because the more clued up you are, the more likely you are to enjoy your day safely. •Don’t drink alcohol until you have returned to the shore because alcohol can cause both skippers and passengers to behave recklessly. •Ensure correctly-fitting lifejackets are worn at all times on the water because they may save your life. •Carry two forms of communication that will work in the area you are boating in. •Last, but not least – be courteous to other boaties, and respect swimmers and divers who are in the water nearby. If you comply with these simple requests, we should have a safe, incident-free summer.
