Why is taking a boating safety course necessary? What if I already know everything?
Sadly, the facts speak for themselves. In 2019…
- 70% of deaths occurred on boats where the operator had no boating safety instruction.
- There were 600 boating related fatalities.
- $55 million dollars of property damage accrued as a result of recreational boating accidents.
No matter what type of boater you are, your age, or your location, it’s always important to refresh your safety skills. Knowledge is power, and everyone loves to be (or be on board with) a knowledgeable, capable boater. Whether you’re a seasoned boater or a beginner looking to learn the ropes, you’ll never know what you don’t know.
Additionally, many states require all boat operators to have a boater education card or boat license.
