In the past, high-performance boating has often been dealt a blow below the Plimsoll line by those boaters who disregard the safety aspects of boating by endangering other boaters in the immediate vicinity. But, fret not, today’s boaters are generally better trained and more responsible when it comes to high speeds on the water. After all, a powerful boat in the wrong hands can become a dangerous or even lethal guided [misguided, Ed.] missile. To manage such a powerful machine, one needs to treat it with the utmost respect and caution.
Before you open the throttle to its fullest and race off into the distance, spend as much time as you can on the water gaining the necessary experience. Take time to hone your boating skills and partake in any boating courses you can. With high speed comes extreme responsibility.
