Green Tips for Boaters

As we enjoy the summer boating season, it offers the opportunity to extend the environmental stewardship practices that you put in play at home and with your car through green boating practices to protect Burrard Inlet and other coastal waters of BC. One of the easiest things you can do is to reduce unncessary idling of marine engines. Idling of marine engines can contribute carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides (NOx) which pollute our airshed and contribute to climate change.

Boaters can help to reduce pollution by:

  • looking to reduce total fuel consumption through the boating season by smart boating techniques such as planing, minimizing time with open throttle and planning trips
  • eliminating unncessary idling by turning off the motor when you are tied up at dock
  • ensuring proper maintenance of your boat motor by following recommended maintenance schedule and keeping boat battery properly charged. This has the added side benefit of avoiding disappointment when a boat won't start or run properly properly after launch
  • ensuring that your propeller is is good shape and sized properly
  • don't overload your boat as excess weight will use additional fuel
  • protecting the marine environment by avoiding spilling fuel
