Updated Outboard Motor broke off & flipped into boat lists
We updated our Outboard Motor Struck Submerged Object and Flipped Into Boat list today (2 May 2016).
We still have many more to add to the list above plus the 2015 U.S. Coast Guard Boating Accident Report Database (BARD) will be out with more soon as well.
We also updated our list of Bass Boat Outboard Motor Struck Submerged Object & Flipped into Boat list today (2 May 2016).
Several of these accidents resulted in propeller injuries or fatalities.
We encourage those working on preventing these accidents to view our paper titled, Approaches to Prevent Outboard Motors From Flipping Into Boats After Striking Floating or Submerged Objects. We also have considerable additional information that had not yet been integrated into that report.
