Check your library's and book stores' boating sections for boating-safety books. I almost bought one that was helpful otherwise but manifested an anti-kayak bias. You can find that pretty quickly by looking in the index under "kayaks". I don't want to support authors like that when there are other good books around.

A free source of info is your state's boating-safety booklet and its boating regulations booklet. These might be online also, so check for those.

Some kayaking books contain a summary of the most important boating-safety protocols.

You can get a lot of info for no or little money if you first check the above sources.
