Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Captain's Corner

Test Your Boating Knowledge

This is the first of several boating-safety quizzes offered to educate (or remind) boaters of some important guidelines. Although they may be helpful, it is recommended that all who recreate on and near the water take a boating-safety class. (See page 3 of this issue for a list of current classes.) This recommendation is for both new boaters and for seasoned ones who would benefit from an update.

There is a prize for the first one who answers all questions correctly and e-mails those answers to jim@azbw.com. The answers appear on another page in this issue.

Good luck!
