If you own a boat (or better yet, as the joke goes, you know someone who does), you've probably thought about spending some evenings on the water – especially in the summertime.

While these tips are important, there's nothing like experience to help ensure a safe voyage. If you're a new boater or just in an unfamiliar vessel, you may want to put in more hours during the day before tackling an area at night. Even then, start with short evening outings and work your way up to a moonlight ride. And don't forget to turn on the lights at the dock before you go!
