Boat Safety Checklist - make sure you are prepared!

Boating safety at the Lake of the Ozarks is a priority for the Surdyke Yamaha team.  All of our watercraft are extremely safe on the water, but there are items you should always include in the boat to make sure you and your family or guests have a fun and safe boating experience.  Here is a boating checklist you should consider:



Boat Checklist


Always have a personal flotation device for each person on the boat


National statistics show 79% of those killed in boating accidents were not wearing a life jacket. Last year in Missouri that number was closer to 90% of boating fatality victims not wearing a life jacket. Missouri law requires boaters to have a life jacket on board and accessible for each occupant of the boat. Children under the age of seven are required to wear a life jacket whenever they are on a boat unless they are in the cabin area of a house boat or cruiser. All jet ski and personal watercraft users are required to wear life jackets anytime they are underway. The simple act of choosing to wear a life jacket has made a huge difference for many accident survivors.


Have a VHF radio on your boat


Weather can change very rapidly and create unexpected situations for boat operators. You should always monitor weather developments. One way is to tune into the frequencies listed below on a VHF radio.

VHF Frequencies Broadcasting NOAA Weather Reports
162.400 MHzColumbia, St. Joseph, Sikeston, Springfield
162.450 MHzHermitage, Humansville, Pomme de Terre, Warsaw
162.475 MHzHannibal, Holliday
162.550 MHzCamdenton, Kansas City, Osage Beach, St. Louis

VHF Radio Channels

The most commonly used VHF channels on U.S. waters are:

Channel 6

Intership safety communications.

Channel 9

Communications between vessels (commercial and recreational), and ship to coast.

Channel 13

Navigational use by commercial, military, and recreational vessels at bridges, locks, and harbors.

Channel 16

Distress and safety calls to U.S. Coast Guard and others, and to initiate calls to other vessels.

Channel 22

Communications between the U.S. Coast Guard and the public. Severe weather warnings, hazards to navigation, and other safety warnings are broadcast on this channel.

Channels 24-28

Public telephone calls (to marine operator).

Channels 68, 69, and 71

Recreational vessel radio channels and ship to coast

Have a good First Aid Kit


Having a good first aid kit on your boat can help you handle minor injuries and can also make a difference in a major injury.  Some elements of the kit can include:

  • Bandages and band aids
  • Antiseptic cream
  • Aspirin or similar pain reliever
  • Barrier gloves
  • Tweezers and Scissors
  • Burn ointment and sunburn ointment
  • Other medical supplies

Have a Throwable Cushion(s) or Ring and Fire Extinguisher(s)


Have several cushions or flotation rings available.  If a passenger falls overboard without a life jacket on, these flotation devices can save their lives.  Every boat is also required to have a working fire extinguisher(s) on board.Coast Guard requirements differ on the number of extinguishers required, based on the length of the boat.  


Surdyke Yamaha wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable boating season at the Lake of the Ozarks.  If you have any questions on boat safety, come on into our beautiful showroom and one of our team can help you!

What are Customers are saying about us:


Richard,

I wanted to give you an update on my motor problem...I received several calls on the status of the repair, and when it would be done. When I got them to pick it up, they were helpful and friendly. Pontoon is running good so far and enjoying the water. Thank you for all your help!

My KTM tool arrived safely and I am very happy with it, thank you for your great service.

 Greg,

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what an outstanding job your parts department, specifically Richard, did when I ordered a replacement oil plug for an ATV purchased from your store several years ago. I knew you no longer carried this brand of ATV so the chances of obtaining a replacement plug were low, but Richard spent a lot of time and effort sourcing the plug, making several calls, and always being nice enough to keep me informed of his progress.... after several weeks of never giving up he was finally able to secure two plug assemblies. I have never know someone to work so hard and long for a $20 parts order. I know it was not a large order for your company but all of the effort Richard made is most appreciated by this Surdyke customer.

I have purchased a total of four WaveRunners and one ATV from Surdyke's and am currently looking at a boat. Rest assured, based on the service above and beyond provided by Richard, Surdyke will continue to be my first choice when purchasing any type of ATV or watercraft.

Greg

I took receipt of a new PWC today for my wife. I want to say that the buying and indoctrination experience was outstanding. Doug was a pleasure to work with in concluding the sale at the boat show in St. Louis and helpful in getting us into the receiving end of the PWC.

Justin did the indoctrination of the operation of the PWC for my wife and I can't say enough good things about his knowledge of the product, courtesy and skill in teaching a novice about the watercraft. You have great employees. All in all our experience with Surdyke was excellent and will keep us coming back.

--- Mike M., St Louis, MO

********************************************************************************

Greg

Jjust a note to tell you what a great company you have that I am sure is directly related to great employees.

I purchased used G3 tritoon from your group this spring and couldn't be happier with the experience. Drew was absolutely great with the sale, couldn't of been better. Mike and Drew were real troopers with the delivery/orientation in very inclement weather and Mike was very patient and helpful with all our beginner questions, even in a few emails latter to clarify things. Vince was very thorough and informative in fixing a few minor issues. At the closing Jeff was informative but not pushy in explaining cove coverage which I reluctantly bought but am glad i did. Overall the whole purchase process was a painless, pleasant, non stressful ordeal but it gets better.

Last Saturday went out at 3 pm to use our boat and the batteries were shot. I called in at 3 on Saturday afternoon for cove service not expecting much immediate satisfaction but Rick and Mike had someone there in 20 minutes with new batteries. Absolutely stellar response! I didn't get the young man's name with the batteries (tall, thin, curly hair) but he had a great personality and was a joy to deal with. After we got going we went to Port 20 for gas and ran into Maddison. What a great ambassador for your company. A true sweetheart that gives a person faith in the next generation.

*******************************************************************************

Greg, most people in business can only dream of assembling a team like you have who truly like to service customers. You have a great company and count me as a repeat customer.

--- Denny G., Belle Plaine, Iowa

The Surdyke Team would love to make you a happy customer too!
