Florida is home to miles and miles of waterways, including coastal waters, channels, rivers, and lakes. With its mild weather and well-known recreational areas, millions of people in the state spend time on yachts, motorboats, sailboats, other vessels, and personal watercraft. As a result, Florida surpasses all other states when it comes to boating accidents. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, Florida led all states in 2012 for total accidents, property damage, deaths, and injuries involving boats. A total of 662 boating accidents occurred in 2012. Fifty people died and another 398 sustained injuries. Damages resulting from these accidents exceeded $6,800,000. The Coast Guard has reported that almost 57 percent of all U.S. boating accidents are associated with operator error, poor judgment, or inexperience. Another known cause of these accidents includes the use of alcohol while boating.
Many boating accidents are caused by the negligence or misconduct of the boat or personal watercraft operator.
