Eleven Green Boating Tips

May 2016

Soon after a boat passes, its wake has vanished. But as boaters we do impact the waters we love, and there are ways to keep our “wakeprints” invisible. Anglers, it seems, have a special stake. They have extra potential to have negative impacts through bait, gear and fillet knives as well as a special interest in keeping waters and their inhabitants healthy. But all boaters have both the opportunity and the responsibility to leave their waterways and world as unsullied as possible. Fortunately, it’s not as painful as it sounds. Often, going green and boating in a thoughtful way makes it more pleasant, more affordable and more fun. Start with these 11 tips:

1. Repel Invaders

Help keep invasive alien species — both plants and animals — from spreading. Clean and dry your boat and trailer between outings. Don’t move live fish from one body of water to another. Dispose of bait properly — not in the lake.

2. Keep Your Head, Properly

Whether it’s an installed, plumbed head or a portable potty, don’t shortcut the pump-out process. No head? Liners and seats are available to turn a five-gallon pail into a “throne.” It’s not fancy but it is functional and lake-friendly.

3. Clean Cleanly

Use environmentally friendly cleaners where possible — white vinegar to kill mold, for example. Tough tasks may call for tough tools, but always go as mild as the job allows.

4. Maintain Your Motor

Get regular tuneups, fix leaks and clean up spills. That all minimizes the escape of fuel and lubricants and — as with many green ideas — it saves you money too via lower operation and repair costs.

5. Replace Your Engine

Aspirated two-stroke engines not only burn oil, they let some of the oil/gas mixture escape between firings. Direct-injection two-strokes and four-stroke engines operate much cleaner. As a result, you might consider repowering a used boat.

6. Watch Your Wake

Besides irritating others, threatening damage to other boats, and maybe even creating a hazard, waves can cause erosion of fragile shorelines. When boating through delicate areas, take it easy.

7. Talk Tackle

Fishing line and other lost tackle, including soft baits that fish might eat, last virtually forever. Losses happen, but don’t add to the situation by carelessly tossing overboard stuff you’re done with.

8. Cut Commuter Carbon

Stay an extra night! You’ll feed the boat its daily oats but drive time and cost will remain the same, yielding more boating per highway mile and carbon footprint. Check trailer tire pressure, and find the highway speed that burns the least fuel.

9. Harvest Deliberately

Nothing’s better than a mess of fresh-caught fish, but think twice before taking a hefty harvest if the fillets are only going to sulk in a freezer until defrost time. Catch and release? Do both quickly, with a snapshot in between.

10. Learn the Rules

Nearly all boating and fishing rules are written not to hassle us, but to keep us safe and protect the environment in which we pursue our boating pleasure.

11. Goodbye, Old Paint

Anti-fouling coating is serious business on a boat, but there are new water-based, environmentally friendlier ways to do it with no odor, fumes or solvents. Clean up with soap and water, and watch for similar advances in other boating supplies.
