    Clear The Air is boat friendly and a boat owners dream!

    If you’ve ever been on a boat you have probably experienced a few odors that linger on boats. Whether it is from the bilge or galley, boats usually like to hold on to their odors.

    Clear the Air can eliminate boat odors and make your boating experience a great one.

    Check out our tips for boating safely and remember to keep a few extra Odor Eliminator Bags on board for your boat!

    1. Weather – Always check the weather before departing on your boat. TV and radio forecasts are usually a good source of information. If you start to notice dark clouds and rough changing winds, get off the water.
    2. Prepared – Prepare for any possibility on the water. Fire safety, fueling tips, and more should all be included on your pre-departure checklist.
    3. Safety – Operate at a safe speed and use common sense. Be alert; steer clear of larger vessels and watercraft that have a harder time turning than you do.
    4. Float Plan – Let others on land know where you plan to go and how long you plan to be gone.
    5. Life Jackets – The majority of drowning victims from boating accidents were found not to be wearing life jackets. Your family and friends aboard the boat must all be assigned to and fitted with a life jacket prior to departure.
    6. Alcohol – Save the alcohol for later. The likelihood of being involved in a boating accident doubles when alcohol is involved.
    7. Learn To Swim – If you are around and in the water, you should know how to swim safely. Check for local classes in your area so you can learn how to swim.
