USCG Releases Recreational Boating Statistics 2015
USCG reported 158 propeller accidents, 150 propeller injuries, and 27 propeller fatalities.
We would like to thank USCG for all the efforts they put into this annual statistical report of boating accidents.
We would also like to thank USCG, law enforcement officials, lake patrols, first responders, nurses and physicians, those offering boating safety classes, boat safety equipment check points, safe boaters, state boating law administrators, life jacket loaner program participants, Operation Dry Water, and all others who work tirelessly to drive these annual totals down.
Plus thanks to all the state boating law administrators and all the officers in the field filling out the accident reports, and to the individuals that self reported their accidents.
