Boating Accidents

People operating boats and other watercraft of any kind often do so much closer to each other than drivers of motor vehicles do - and without any particular lanes Boating Accidents or areas of travel. While aircraft operate at different altitudes depending upon the direction they are traveling to avoid collisions, there are no such controls in the water. In addition, the fact you have operated a car does not prepare you for operating a boat or other watercraft. Nevertheless, year after year after year people operate watercraft recklessly as well as using poor judgment when pulling water skiers or people on inner tubes. They will use over-powered boats, and tow ropes which are not strong enough either for the boats, skiers or tubers.
