Excerpt
Excerpt: Recreational boating deaths: a SERIOUS problem // Recreational boating is fun, but the water can be unforgiving. // An average of 714 boaters die each year; 508 of those by drowning. // Deaths are the result of 2 major safety failures: lack of a required personal flotation device (PFD) and uneducated boaters. // Most parents would not drive anywhere without their kids in seatbelts, car seats or booster seats. Parents should not hesitate to protect children, on the water, in a life jacket. // Most of those who drown were in open motorboats (51 percent) and in boats less than 21 feet in length (71 percent). // PFD wear is effective. Boating accident data shows that when mandatory PFD requirements are adopted, drowning fatalities go down. // About 84 percent of these drowning victims would still be alive, if they had worn PFDs (U.S. Coast Guard estimate). // Eighty percent of recreational boat operators involved in accidents had never completed a boating safety education course.
