Review Safe Boating Practices

Approximately 17 percent of all recreational boating deaths (about 300 boat accidents and 124 fatalities each year) are the result of consuming alcohol while boating on the water. A boater with a blood alcohol level above .10 percent is about 10 times as likely to suffer fatal injuries in a boating accident as a boat operator who did not consume any alcohol, according to the Miami coast guard. Don’t drink while driving a boat. It’s dangerous and you can be arrested for a BWI (boating while impaired). (Photo: William B. Plowman/Getty Images)
