Boating Safety Numbers Are Out

Boating accidents and deaths from those accidents are down on the Coast. According to the Department of Marine Resources, there were 28 accidents this recreational boating season, down from 73 in 2000.

Three fatal boating accidents were reported this year, compared to four last year. Marine Patrol says one reason the number of accidents is down is because more people are taking boat safety classes.
