Don’t Be Left High and Dry on Your First Boat Trip of the Season

Extra! Read All Aboat It!

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Parks and Wildlife Department game wardens have seen a lot of boaters try and go out for their first run of the season and for one reason or another, fail to make a successful trip.

Either they back their truck right into the water, they forget to put fresh gasoline in the boat, forget to put the plug in the boat or a whole host of other ’slip’-ups. Some say boat docks at the end of May and beginning of June bring a whole new meaning to the phrase, "comedy of errors."

But the ramifications of taking out a non-seaworthy boat are no laughing matter. Wardens say there are steps each boater should go through before taking their craft out for the first time this year.
