Avoid Boat or Jet Ski Collisions

Just like we need them on the roads, there are rules on the water that must be followed so we all don’t run into each other.

Apart from always operating your vessel at a safe speed, the most basic of these rules is to always give way to a boat approaching from your starboard or right side and always turn to starboard to avoid a collision if one is imminent.

This video from the Brownies Coastwatch Vault clearly shows how this rule works.
