Boating Fail: Clearance Check

Don’t lose your head when transiting tight spaces.

Boating through bridges, locks and dams can be especially tricky because the waterway narrows and even minor mistakes are magnified. If you’re not careful, you could severely damage your boat like today’s Boating Fail subject. Always try to plan ahead for any bridge, lock or dam passage, and do your best to stay calm in the face of adversity.
