RentalBoatSafety.com Appearance on Bob’s No Wake Zone

Chesapeake, VA - April 1, 2013

RentalBoatSafety.com appears again on Boating Safety Radio Show to raise awareness of the free safety materials being offered by the U.S. Coast Guard for Rental Boat Customers.

RentalBoatSafety.com was recently highlighted on “Bob’s No Wake Zone Radio Show” based in Missouri. Bob interviewed Melanie Bedogne, Program Manager for RentalBoatSafety.com, to discuss the upcoming boating season and the free and educational resources offered through the U.S. Coast Guard on RentalBoatSafety.com. Listen Now.

As noted in a recent survey by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, rental boat patrons and boat owners said that the number one reason to be out on the water was to enjoy family-bonding time together. With this in mind, RentalBoatSafety.com, along with the US Coast Guard, is committed to educating rental boat customers on safe boating practices to help ensure a safe and fun experience on the water.

The informative and engaging video-based online materials provided by RentalBoatSafety.com include boat-specific training and cover such topics as basic navigation rules, general safe operating procedures, towing, lifejacket wear, and refraining from use of alcohol while boating. The resources provided by RentalBoatSafety.com cover training and safety topics on general watercraft-operating procedures for fullsize power boats, PWC’s and even paddle craft such as canoes and kayaks. These materials serve as a brief, yet comprehensive refresher course for infrequent boaters. All of the materials, including videos, are offered in English and Spanish.

Bob and Melanie also discussed the success of RentalBoatSafety.com’s recent promotional video starring Michel Copon, which has helped point the boating public to the site. Watch Now.

In addition to the videos, RentalBoatSafety.com provides downloadable checklists, in-house training materials, and a 25-question assessment to test boating safety knowledge.

Rental Boat Liveries can also register online to receive a free DVD for in-house training at their operation by visiting www.rentalboatsafety.com/participate.php.
