Stay Safe on the Water

The Lake Erie Marine Trades Association, Boating Associations of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Department of Parks and Watercraft, have teamed up to produce an educational video calling attention to potential carbon monoxide poisoning on boats. While a very rare occurrence, carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced by gasoline engines, can build up in any boat’s spaces that aren’t well ventilated, resulting in injury or death. With the continuing record numbers of new families now plying Ohio’s waterways, this educational video is seen as an important message that will help all boaters avoid any problems.
