Early in the boating season, water temperatures on rivers, ponds and lakes remain rather cold. Immersion in cold water can be life threatening very quickly due to hypothermia and the bodies inability to work efficiently in the cold water. Therefore, it is recommended to consider postponing small craft boating activities until water temperatures become warmer. However, if you choose to venture out, wear all recommended cold water protective gear, including a life jacket, in the event of an accident.
