Summer is the prime time to get out on the water and enjoy your boat. But, regardless of how much experience you have, it’s important that you review boating safety rules to protect yourself and others. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, 4,064 recreational boating accidents were counted in 2014 that involved 610 deaths, 2,678 injuries and $39 million in property damage. The leading causes of these accidents were alcohol use, excessive speed, and operator inexperience. As a boat operator, you are responsible for the lives of the passengers and those injured in an accident.
