Many of us in California have fond memories waterskiing, wakeboarding, sailing and cruising on our beautiful ocean and local rivers and lakes. Boating can be a fun pastime, but sadly, it can also be dangerous. California is second in the U.S. for the highest number of boating accidents. There are 900,000 registered vessels in California. According to the Operational Boating Statistic report, in 2009, there were 4,730 boating accidents in the U.S. due to operator negligence. Operator inattention, lack of experience, extreme speed and alcohol use were the top five contributing factors. It is no secret that people enjoy partying on the water, but the fun can easily turn into a serious boating accident. The number of fatalities related to boating triples when alcohol is involved. You cannot make decisions for others in the water, however, you can take precautions by staying attentive and wearing a life jacket. Because of the number of accidents in California, the Department of Boating and Waterways provides safety courses for both novice and advanced boaters. Accidents can happen on a privately owned boat, jet ski, ferry or any other type of watercraft.
