- Keep your boat well clear of power lines.
- Electricity can arc from the lines to a mast or aerial without having to even touch the line.
- Check and know the location of overhead power lines - especially near boat ramps and camping ground entrances - and know the height the lines are above the ground.
- Know the height of your boat and mast - both on the water and on the trailer.
- Allow for variations in water levels due to flooding or water discharge from dams causing high lake levels.
