Here’s a collection of boat crash / accident pictures. Boating accidents can be pretty dangerous, aside from all the other regular dangers of an accident… there’s the added risk of getting stranded at sea or drowning (like if you’re unconscious as a result of the crash, it’s easy to drown in such cases).
I’m lucky to live in an area where boating security classes are required to get a boating permit. If you don’t have such regulation in your area, you should still look into classes like this… it can come in very handy. The time to think about that is not once you’re in trouble on the water… then it’s too late
Also if you’re gonna own a boat or just go boating, please have some proper insurance in addition to wearing proper safety apparel (like floating vests) and taking all other security precautions. And I don’t just mean boat insurance, have some health and life insurance also! Remember that every time you go out on the water you put not only yourself at risk but even your own family and loved ones that stay at home that have to deal with the aftermath if something were to happen to you.
Think about that for a second. It’s a lot of responsibility that most people don’t think about before taking out that boat but it’s something that’s good to think about once in a while. Please take a moment to think about it now.
Insurance doesn’t have to be expensive. Most people are surprised at the little investment required to have peace of mind and protect yourself, those you love and your material possessions. The trick is to compare the providers, you can do that on a site like this one, you just input you zip code and hit “get quotes” and you can instantly compare all the best providers in you particular area. So do this now if you own a boat or plan to do some boating.
