Take time on the water as serious as your date. Night boating can be a magical moment in an epic romance, or a disaster. Here are the four main rules for night boating, and it seems to us that they may be great rules for living:
1. Slow down, you can’t judge distances as easily as you can when you have high visibility and a relative sense of distant objects.
2. Arrange your interior lighting so that you are not blinded by your own illumination.
3. Use your hearing to your best advantage, sound carries across the water as if amplified.
4. If you’re not comfortable skippering your own boat in the dark, try and go out with a friend as a passenger.
Be safe, and have a beautiful evening.
