The National Safe Boating Council officially launched a new website this week to help the recreational boater become more aware of on-the-water navigation rules to enjoy a safer time on the water.

BoatOnCourse.com takes a practical approach to boating by relating it to something boaters are already familiar with: the "rules of the road" when driving a car.

BoatOnCourse.com hopes to get recreational boaters excited about learning more by taking a boating safety course. The basic navigation rules are presented in a casual, relaxed manner, introducing basic awareness in key areas, including Responsible Boat Operations (the responsibility between vessels, proper lookout and safe speed), Overtaking, Crossing and Meeting Head-On situations.

"BoatOnCourse.com is a great way to create an awareness of the navigation rules," National Safe Boating Council executive director Virgil Chambers said. "The scenarios can happen to any boater out on the water; this website addresses the most common navigation rules and boating situations and provides resources for boaters to take their navigation rules awareness to the next level."
