Motor vehicles not only present a convenient way to get from point A to point B; they’re also a means of recreation and a gateway to personal freedom for many. Boats, in particular, often serve as a leisure craft, allowing owners and guests to enjoy days spent cruising nearby waterways. With fantastic weather year-round and abundant water to enjoy in California, boating is a natural pastime.
Like any form of transportation, however, boats can prove hazardous. Accidents can happen, despite safe and responsible behavior, and injury and even death could result. Anything from changing weather conditions to the negligence of other boaters could spell trouble on the water.
