According to the US Coast Guard, there were 424 accidents in 2011 that were directly related to improper boat maintenance or equipment failure. That number dropped to 307 in 2015, but it was still the fourth largest cause of recreational boating accidents and accounted for 17 deaths and 134 injuries in 2015.
Having a regular schedule of maintenance on your boat can not only keep your safe, it can also help conserve fuel AND the environment. A regular maintenance program will catch leaking fuel and oil before it has a chance to contaminate the waters you boat on. A well-maintained engine is also more efficient and used less fuel.
Here’s a good video on boat safety that was created by one of our insurance companies, American Modern. American Modern insures boats, personal watercraft, RVs, ATVs and more.
