The number one piece of safety equipment on a boat is the life jacket. Law requires children under the age of thirteen to wear one while boating. Roy Owens says "this is an inflatable life jacket. If you do not like wearing a big heavy life jacket, invest in one of these. It costs about $125. It is worth the money versus losing your life." The inflatable jacket contains a CO2 cartridge and keeps you face side up in the water. Be on the lookout for others while on the lake. Roy Owens says "we like to encourage people to stay to the right, just like on the highway. Be observant while you are out there. Scan the horizon and make sure another boat is not in your path." Personal water craft operators of any age are required by law to wear a life jacket at all times. Roy Owens says "personal water craft have to stay at least fifty feet away from anything. Whether it be a boat, another jet ski, a swimmer, or fisherman unless they are at no wake speed." Drinking alcohol excessively while boating could land you in jail. Roy Owens says "once the driver get intoxicated, the driver of the boat can be arrested for boating while intoxicated." While most recreational boaters prefer Lake Nasworthy, Twin Buttes has risen above debris and the water is much cleaner. Roy Owens says "just out from the boat ramp there is not much of that island sticking out. I encourage people as you get close to that, slow down a little." Twin Buttes is filling up and is not crowded.
