Accident Data Charts

The charts in this section are designed to provide general statewide information on boating accidents. Some charts are organized by the number of accidents or fatalities. Other charts are organized by the number of vessels involved in accidents. The totals listed on the charts listing types of accident (Charts 8, 15, 24) and the causes of accidents (Charts 9, 16, 25) exceed the total number of accidents because many accidents fell into more than one category. The charts listing the ages of operators involved in accidents (Charts 6, 22) show both the total number of vessels involved in accidents and a smaller total showing the total number of operators involved in accidents, as not all vessels had operators.
