Well, the heat of the summer will start fading soon and that means cooler temperatures and higher potential for condensation on boat surfaces especially in the morning or evening. Most boats have non-slip surfaces in places where one would typically walk, however stepping outside of those areas could mean slippery surfaces and the perfect conditions for a slip and fall. If you plan to be on such surfaces, wear appropriate footwear such as water shoes that will provide good traction on your boat surfaces. This is especially important if you plan to wash your boat in the early morning. Otherwise, the best prevention is to stay on your non-skid surfaces.
Remember….Being aware of your surroundings/environment is key to your personal safety.
