Boating in New Mexico
When you think of New Mexico, you may think of an arid and deserted landscape. Boating or any related water activities may be far from what comes to mind. But don’t be fooled; New Mexico has impressive water bodies that offer several water activities, including fishing and boating. Elephant Butte Lake is the largest lake in the state of New Mexico, and it is the most popular spot to enjoy the water. This lake is an artificial reservoir created by the construction of a dam across the Rio Grande. It is about 40 miles long and consists of approximately 200 miles of shorelines.
If you are thinking of trying something new or enjoying a weekend outdoors, consider boating in one of the many lakes scattered around the state. One thing that is important with all water sports is safety. This is important to the extent that the state has set in place boating regulations. The state requires that all boat operators born on or after January 1st, 1989 carry proof o boater education. Safety should be the number one priority.
By taking the BoatTests101 Boat Safety course, you will learn the necessary skills to operate a boat safely, to avoid the mistakes that can lead to accidents and even fatalities. Also, and no less important, you will be reviewing topics relating to the environment and how to avoid contamination. In this day and age, this is something that we must always be concerned about.
