With the better weather it seems like everyone I know was boating last weekend. That’s a lot of impaired boaters! Most recreational boating accidents involve a collision with another vessel or with a fixed object. The primary cause of these accidents is typically excessive speed and alcohol use. In some instances, boating accidents are caused by a manufacturing or design defect. Should you or someone you know be injured in a boating accident, don’t call the Skipper or Gilligan, give “Marianne” a call.
