In the Pacific Northwest, we are fortunate to have many pristine lakes, a vast river system, and the Puget Sound. Boaters, swimmers, fishermen, and water sports enthusiasts frequent these bodies of water year round. Unfortunately, not all of them practice proper boat safety and good judgment. And this can result in personal injury or even death.
According to the Coast Guard, there were 105 accidents in 2012 in WA State, resulting in 34 injuries and 28 deaths.
