Manitou Boats, a member of the National Safe Boating Council which sponsors National Safe Boating Week, believes that safety is of the utmost importance:

"We feel that the National Safe Boating Week is a fun yet informative annual reminder to boaters about precautionary measures that should be taken to ensure safe and enjoyable experiences on the water. We recently joined the National Safe Boating Council to further our support of safety on the water. Time on the water is usually spent with friends and family, their safety should be held in the highest regard," says Greg VanWagenen, Director of Sales and Marketing at Manitou Boats.

Manitou Boats ensure that their boats provide the highest tier of safety possible: "Since our inception in 1986, Manitou has gone above and beyond to provide customers with the safest boating experience they can have on the water. We joined the NMMA our first year of business and have been a member ever since. Until recently, abiding by ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) standards was the only requirement for a boat builder; the NMMA membership was voluntary and requires much more stringent manufacturing practices," adds VanWagenen.

National Safe Boating Week 2011 is May 21 through May 27th, 2011 and is sponsored by the National Safe Boating Council. To view the boater safety quiz, visit Manitou Boats is a leading pontoon boat manufacture. For additional information on Manitou Boats, please visit
