DFW Summer Boat Expo: Full lakes mean greater focus on safety

As July 4th approaches and the lakes in North Texas are full to the brim (and, in some cases, higher), it’s clear we’re in the middle of a robust boating season

As July 4th approaches and the lakes in North Texas are full to the brim (and, in some cases, higher), it’s clear we’re in the middle of a robust boating season.

Bron Beal, executive director of The United Boat Dealers of North Texas, presenter of the 2016 DFW Summer Boat Expo, says, “While summer boating prospects and sales are on the rise because of lower fuel prices, higher water levels and renewed customer confidence, it’s more important than ever to be aware of all conditions that contribute to safety on the water, especially those associated with elevated water.”


·         Be mindful of your surroundings – weather, water vessels and other visitors on the lake.

·         Watch for things like stumps, picnic tables, retaining walls and other structures typically located along a shoreline that may now be submerged due to lake levels.

·         Be aware of floating debris. Higher lake levels can mean more driftwood and debris in the water. Please be on the lookout as you are boating.

·         Watch the waves – impacts from wakes can cause a boat passenger to be thrown into the air and land forcefully back onto the boat. It’s wise to slow down whenever passing another boat.

·         Be especially cautious when boating at night, the time of day when it’s the most difficult to recognize dangers.

·         In all conditions, the safest move is to wear a lifejacket.
