While the general principals apply to many types of outdoor activities, this particular set seems geared toward land-related activities.
Of course all are true no matter who or where you are, or what you're doing, including boating. However, boats and those who use them also have some unique challenges in terms of leaving no trace. I'm thinking especially of things like water and air pollution; endangerment of water-related animal and plant life, sometimes permanently; human waste removal; making too much noise around other boaters or people on land; interfering with those who are using the waters for things such as swimming or fishing; and others I haven't named. With any challenges come responsibility, so I wondered if there's an equivalent organization or set of ethics provided for boaters to follow.
This would encompass things like
- boaters and their behavior in general
- different kinds of boats and their purpose
- various types of bodies of water
- boats which are moving, moored, or docked
- geographical location, which might need to be named specifically if rules vary
Does such an organization or set of principles exist? If so, how can I find the information? It might need to be more than one group in order to cover all the things that concern me. Perhaps it's under the umbrella of the Center for Outdoor Ethics, but if so, I didn't see it.
