Boating show returns to New York airwaves

The Discover Better Boating in New York TV series of monthly tips resumed Saturday.

The educational outreach is a collaboration among New York Sea Grant, the Boating Industries Association of Upstate New York and Your News Now in Syracuse. The first segment will focus on boating apps for smartphones and other electronic devices, according to the Madison County (N.Y.) Courier.

Series host Dave White, a coastal recreation and tourism specialist with New York Sea Grant, interviews marine industry professionals about how to enjoy New York’s waters cleanly, safely, cost-effectively, legally and in environmentally friendly ways.

Topics have included fuel efficiency, boating safety, how to buy or rent a boat, trailering, storage, Coast Guard courtesy vessel examination and boating destinations in New York.

The seasonal series began in 2011 as a result of the Discover Clean & Safe Boating campaign that New York Sea Grant and BIA created in 2008.

Shows air on the third Saturday of the month from May through October. The 2011 and 2012 segments of Discover Better Boating are online.
