With over 700 thousand acres of surface water, 17 thousand miles of navigable waterway, and 32 major reservoirs, there’s plenty of places in Tennessee to go have some fun on the water. But when you add more than 260 thousand registered boats to all that water, the odds of getting in an accident go up.
That’s why the TWRA and others are working hard to keep us all safe on the water. Wild Side Guide Eve Annunziato takes us to Old Hickory Lake in Middle Tennessee for a refresher course in boat safety.
If you like to boat but have never taken a safety course, don’t be afraid to sign up, you can find out how by visiting the TWRA’s website at www.state.tn.us/twra/boatmain.html.
