This is National Boating Safety Week.
If you head out this Memorial Day weekend, you will want to make sure you have life jackets, a fire extinguisher, and you need to seriously check your bilge pump.
That is the machine that pumps water out from underneath the deck of your boat.
Bassmaster veteran Tom Hamlin says a lead weight could jam itself in the pump and sink your boat. He says he has seen it happen before.
