Fresh Water + Alternating Current = Danger

Thank you to our Facebook fan, Sue Stewart, for sending us this link to an article describing the dangers of letting your children swim around boats docked within a marina. The article tells us that current leaking into the water from appliances on the boats can electrocute swimmers, or cause Electric Shock Drowning.Take a look at the article in “Boat U.S” entitled “Electric Shock Drowning Explained.”  Let’s stay safe in the water this summer!
