Recreational boating is one of the most popular and enjoyable activities in California and across the county. The number of people "taking to the water" has increased by 20% in the last decade alone.

In 2016, there were 588 boat accidents in California, resulting in 50 deaths and 266 injuries. - CA Division of Boating and Waterways

While failure to properly repair and maintain a vessel does account for some of the accidents, operator negligence is the primary cause of boating injuries. Injury and death due to negligence has increased at an alarming rate and is responsible for over 8,000 injuries each year in the United States.
