Boat accident statistics
« on: May 17, 2017, 05:54:01 PM »

A recent thread on a boat accident made me start reading and researching some things.  One of the byproducts is this report from the Coast Guard.  It's their 2015 Recreational Boating Statistics report.  2015 is the latest I could find but there's some interesting stuff there.  A lot of didn't surprise me.  The primary causes of accidents and deaths are: operator inattention, operator inexperience, excessive speed, alcohol use, improper lookout and navigation rule violations. 

I thought some of you might find it useful so here it is:

If any of you would like to see a list of all the data from prior years reports (I'm looking at you analfisherman   ~roflmao) here is a link to that as well:

All of the accidents around here are caused by the causes you listed, most alcohol related. We have BWI laws that aren't enforced.

Always a great reminder. Not paying attention will get boaters in trouble quickly, even at 30 mph much less twice that.

operator inexperience is right at the top of the list and encompass many of the other catagories to begin with.  this is exactly why we need to have to pass a stringent operators test just as you do to receive a drivers license.  and that on water test should be in the boat you are going to be operating on the water.  many accidents are also from the boater not being familiar with the water.  everyone seems to have the mentality if its wet it is ok to run in.
