Boat Dock Safety

 At a boat dock, there is a surprising amount of electricity, and even the most experienced boater can forget the dangers associated with being that close to electricity. So, it is important to be aware of the risk that electrical hazards can pose to your boating experience. Here are some tips to keep safe around the electrical parts of your boat dock.


  • Get your power box regularly inspected. This is the first (and easiest) thing that you can do.  You do not want to have an issue with your power box and let it go unchecked, as this can cause more issues down the line.


  • Never swim in your marina. Swimming can be dangerous enough around that many boats, but when you factor in the electricity, it becomes an even bigger issue.


  • Turn off your power pedestal if you fear there are any issues with its electricity.  Have your power pedestal checked out by a certified marine electrician. 


  • When you turn off the power, be sure to do so from the dry ground of the dock and not from the water.


  • If dock safety is particularly important to you, have a yearly safety meeting to discuss the safety precautions that you want to take in the marina.
