Summer fun starts with boating safety
Summer means fun on the water, but it’s only fun if it’s done safely.
State law says a motorboat operator must be at least 16 but youths 14 and 15 can take a one-day safety course and get approved to operate a motorboat, sailboat or personal watercraft.
Courses are provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The classes are fast, easy and worth the $15.
Bring your parents; they probably could use a refresher.
Then, hit the water.
