There is nothing more scary than having a fire aboard your boat. What happens when the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water sets out to help boaters improve their fire safety? They burn three types of boats and capture it on video. You'll see what happens, both from the inside and outside as the fires are lit, and learn how to prepare for and address an on-board fire.


The full Foundation Findings report will be revealed in April, with the release of the full-length video on YouTube and an accompanying story in BoatUS Magazine. Stay tuned!

The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is an innovative leader promoting safe, clean and responsible boating. The Foundation provides educational outreach directly to boaters and supports partner organizations nationwide.

Coming back from a day out on the water with friends? Here's how to retrieve your trailer boat with assistance. BoatUS Magazine senior editor Rich Armstrong walks you through the steps to haul your trailer boat safely and easily. After backing the trailer down the ramp, the handlers should walk the boat over onto the trailer and center it, and then someone should connect the winch strap to the eye hook on the bow and crank it in tight. As the boat comes out of the water, the handle should keep it under control. Add the safety chain, then remove the drain plug. Reattach all tiedowns and plug in the trailer lights and ensure they're working.
