    • Water safety: Going down with the ship Tue, 24 May 2016 00:00:00 EDTI have owned at least six boats since I was 15. None of these were big boats, mind you; just 19 feet or less. Being that I'm very safety conscious, I've taken my share of boating courses and always carry more than the minimum requirement of protective gear whenever I go out on the water. I also always leave a float plan. It's nothing fancy - just a piece of notebook paper with the names of my passengers, where I intend to launch, where I am going, the type of vessel and my expected time of return. I have two VHF radios, one of which is a backup, and added an extra bilge pump on my boat as an additional safety precaution. I also have extra life preservers on board at all times. Unfortunately, as I learned firsthand, not all boat owners are as serious about safety.

    • Seat belts: A battle worth fighting Tue, 17 May 2016 00:00:00 EDTHave you ever argued with your children about the importance of wearing seat belts? My personal battle began shortly after my youngest son outgrew his booster seat. Part of the fight was my own doing because I used to allow him to take off his seat belt on long trips so he could lie down in the backseat. At some point, however, I realized the error of my ways and changed the rules for riding in the car. As most people with children can imagine, this started an ongoing conflict that would at times end with me red in the face and my son in tears. Nevertheless, I remained determined to correct the problem I had created.
