Cool ocean breezes on a hot summer day and the freedom of an open sea make boating a favorite pastime for many people. It’s a lifestyle for numerous Long Islanders. However, many boaters are complacent, and don’t take precautions or boating laws serious enough, which can (and has) caused tragedy. If you live on Long Island go out boating for leisure, this post can be extremely informative and perhaps save you from ever enduring a boating accident. Following the laws of boating and ensuring your safety as well as the safety of others on your boat or on the water is vital to both experiencing enjoyable rides and avoiding boating accidents.

Boating Safety Guidelines

The US Coast Guard Recommends the Following Safety Precautions

According to the US Coastguard (USCG), hundreds of people die and thousands suffer injury every year from preventable recreational boating accidents. We cannot overstate how important it is to follow the laws of boating and take the necessary precautions to avoid such tragedies:

  • Wearing a life jacket – The USCG indicates that wearing life jackets would save the lives of more than 80% of people who die while boating. Boating accidents often happen quickly, leaving no time to grab a life jacket
  • Filing a float plan – A float plan is a form that contains details, such as who is on the boat, your boating destination, radio contact, details about your vessel, estimated check in times, who to contact in the event of an emergency, etc. The USCG recommends filling out float plans not just when using larger boats but also for people canoeing, kayaking, rafting, jet skiing, etc.
  • Receiving a vessel safety check. The USCG will check your vessel for free to determine whether it’s safe and provide helpful safety suggestions

There are also numerous other precautions you can take, which include taking courses on boating, learning to swim and avoiding alcohol or drug use. Here are some other tips not stated by law, but extremely useful in regards to safe boating:

  • Before even planning an adventure at sea, check the weather forecast – check it weeks before, the day before, the morning of, and right before – bad weather can lead to catastrophe if you’re boating
  • Understand the navigational aids of the sea, such as buoys, and stay within safe, non-shallow waters – the last thing you want is to destroy your engine if it starts sucking up sand – not only can it be dangerous and unlawful not to follow navigational aids, it can also destroy your boat
  • Entirely avoid large vessels – they do not have the same capability of turning or stopping as smaller boats do, so if you see a large vessel, navigate safely away from them
  • Always have at least another person on board who knows how to drive the boat – in the incident that the driver is injured, the other individual who’s familiar with your boat’s handling, operation, and these safety tips (make sure to inform them) will have to take over driving the boat
  • Take a boating course – it can’t hurt, and you’ll be less anxious if you know more about how to fully operate a boat and what to do in case you’re ever stuck or in a dangerous situation
  • Learn how to swim – in the case of an emergency, if your boat breaks down for example, you may need to swim to shore…butnever, ever swim close to a boat – swimming too close to a boat could very well lead to catastrophe

While in many instances a boating accident is the fault of the boat owner or participants, this is not always true. If someone else’s negligence or recklessness causes a boating accident, you may have legal recourse to recover damages. Hospital and medical expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, and lost future income due to disabling injuries are matters you can discuss with an experienced lawyer.

Hemorrhoids are painful, swollen blood vessels and veins around the anus that can cause severe discomfort to sufferers. They can be internal, located inside the anus, or external, meaning that you’ll find them just outside the anus. Whichever type you have, the root causes are the same.

Treatment Options

There are a number of medicines available that can treat the symptoms of hemorrhoids, but long term, the continued administration of these drugs needs to be monitored by a competent physician. In cases where a patient is not able to continue with a long-term prescription, surgery typically becomes the last resort.

Hemorrhoid surgery is safe but it is invasive like any medical procedure. Many patients may suffer distress from the thought of having a surgeon take a knife to one of the most intimate areas of the human body. Thus, there is a demand for alternative solutions to the problem of hemorrhoids.

HemClear

HemClear is something we’ve taken an interest in recently as it seems to solve the above two problems. It is manufactured entirely from natural ingredients, unlike standard hemorrhoid medicines, and of course, it does not involve a trip to the clinic or general hospital.

The focus of HemClear is to both treat and prevent hemorrhoids. The company claims that each ingredient is selected to tackle both the cause of hemorrhoids, as well as to alleviate the symptoms. But does it stand up to scrutiny? Does this natural hemorrhoid treatment work?

What’s Inside?

Looking at the list of ingredients, our team found no mention of any ingredient that was not plant based. Some of the ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already, such as cayenne pepper or root ginger. As far as we can tell, the all-natural tagline used in the manufacturer’s marketing is accurate. The immediate thought that springs to mind here is that all of these ingredients are perfectly edible in a culinary context, and are therefore safe to consume over a long period of time. The ingredients included in the product are witch hazel, horse chestnut, diosmin, ginger root, hesperidin, oat straw, Butcher’s Broom, bilberry, plantain, rutin, mullein leaf, red root, and cayenne pepper. These have all been carefully selected based on their properties in effectively treating hemorrhoids.

Is HemClear Regulated?

The short answer is yes, HemClear has passed FDA manufacturing checks in the United States, and has been declared safe to use. It is considered as a dietary supplement by the authorities. As far as we can tell, the manufacturer appears to be very open and transparent about their product. The ingredients have been third-party tested to be effective and HemClear has passed quality testing. On top of all the benefits that HemClear provides consumers, this product also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee for the chance that you are not completely satisfied with this product. In our opinion, that makes this product definitely worth trying.
