DID YOU KNOW?

At least 4,439 boating accidents occurred in 2021, resulting in 658 deaths and 2,641 injuries. The vast majority of boat accident fatalities in 2021 were by drowning (81 percent), and 83 percent of those who drowned were not wearing life jackets. Approximately 188 boating accidents involved at least one person striking the boat’s propeller, leading to 24 deaths and 191 injuries.
These accidents are almost always preventable!

The death toll from boating accidents ranks second among deaths in all modes of transportation.
Open motorboats are involved in half of the fatalities recorded.

There are too many boating accidents every year; our goal is to help reduce that number by providing access to Lifecords, Prop Guards, and Lifejackets for Sailing Organizations, coaches, recreational and personal use, and more!
