Lake Conroe - Boating Safety Focus in 2015

Island on Lake Conroe

Island on Lake Conroe

The weather is warmer, the boat ramps are getting busy, and Lake Conroe water sports are in full tilt! From now until about mid October Lake Conroe will be packed with water skiing, tubing, fishing boats, sailboats, slow boats, and some incredibly fast and LOUD boats.

Lake Conroe is host to a myriad of activities all year round. Now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner those fishing tours, jet ski rentals, boat races, and fishing tournaments will be cranking up to full throttle.  That means a lot of boats, a lot of lake traffic, and an ever increasing need for boaters to be alert, sober, and trained on how to handle their craft on the water.

USCGFor this very purpose the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary has established classes and training for all levels of boaters.

From their website:

  • June 6, 2015:  Boat Texas Course
  • June 13, 2015:  Suddenly in Command Course
  • June 27, 2015:  Boat Texas Course
  • September 26, 2015:  Boat Texas Course
  • October 24, 2015:  Boat Texas Course

 Classes start at 8:00am and are held at the San Jacinto River Authority James Adam Building located at:
SJRA Lake Conroe Division – 1577 Dam Site Road – Conroe, Texas 77304

  For registration, to confirm class date, and/or more information, please contact class instructor:

                Pierre Catala:     979-324-4344   or   pcatala1@gmail.com

Here’s another important issue near to every boaters’ heart: “Is my boat ready for an active boating season?”

A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is performed at your boat − ranging in locations from boat to your driveway. A vessel safety check usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of your boat

 What’s In it For Me?

Vessels passing safety checks are awarded a U.S. Coast Guard / Auxiliary Decal that informs:

  • Coast Guard / Auxiliary
  • Harbor Patrol
  • Sheriff’s & Police
  • other boating law-enforcement & safety agency’s

that your boat was in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws during a safety check for that year. Best of all every Vessel Safety Check is 100% Free of charge!

I hope your boating season in 2015 is a fun and safe one!
