Boating Comments: General Safety Regulations When you head out on the lake be sure to follow some simple safety rules. Even when on a private lake that doesn’t get patrolled, being safe is a priority! It is a violation of Florida law to operate a vessel while impaired by alcohol or other drugs. Really just common sense, but as we know living the ” lake life ” sometimes involves alcohol. Save the “Rum Runners” for when you are back home, or better yet make sure you have a designated driver on board! Each person operating, riding on, or being towed behind a personal watercraft must wear an approved non-inflatable wearable personal flotation device (PFD). Inflatable PFDs are prohibited for personal watercraft use. The operator of a vessel towing someone on skis or another aquaplaning device must either have an observer, in addition to the operator, on board who is attendant to the actions of the skier or have and use a wide-angle rear-view mirror.
