Avoid Navigational Hazards

Jeppesen seeks to educate boaters on the importance of keeping up-to-date navigational charts.

Jeppesen, in collaboration with its Alliance for Safe Navigation partners, has recently published a white paper that examines common causes of boating accidents, property loss and injury. The goal is to educate boaters on the importance of keeping up-to-date navigational charts. This is how Jeppesen makes it money, but this is a policy our editors agree with. The paper, "Boat Smart, Update Your Charts" is freely available at www.jeppesen.com/boatsmart.
