Early in the boating season, water temperatures on rivers, ponds 
and lakes remain rather cold. Immersion in cold water can be life 
threatening very quickly due to hypothermia and the bodies inability 
to work efficiently in the cold water. Therefore, it is recommended 
to consider postponing small craft boating activities until water 
temperatures become warmer. However, if you choose to venture 
out, wear all recommended cold water protective gear, including 
a life jacket, in the event of an accident.
