New Discover Clean and Safe Boat Debuts at Central NY Boat Show Feb. 13-17, 2008

Syracuse, NY – Fire extinguishers, flags, flares, first aid kit, floatation devices… There is no better way to learn what you need to properly and legally equip your boat to be on the water in 2008 than attending the Central New York Boat Show to see the new “Discover Clean and Safe Boat,” says David G. White of New York Sea Grant, Oswego, NY. The show runs February 13-17 at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY.

“This exciting new 20-foot-long, actual boat exhibit will be dressed with all the gear required to meet boating law and regulations to visually help boaters learn exactly how to properly and legally equip their boats,” says White, a recreation and tourism specialist with New York Sea Grant, Oswego, NY.

The new Discover Clean and Safe Boat is sponsored by New York Sea Grant; the Boating Industry Association of Central New York, Cicero, NY; Forest Fisheries, Homer, NY; and Morgan Recreational Supply, Farmington, NY.

The new educational exhibit, which will debut in the Toyota Building at the annual boat show, will have various gear and equipment mounted onboard and tagged with details about its use for compliance with the latest boating rules and regulations. The 2008 CNY Boat Show Seminar Series will also provide information on boating safety and regulations and on destinations, diving and fishing in CNY with a speakers roster of charter and canalboat captains, fishing guides, and representatives of Homeland Security and other safety organizations.
