Personalized Boater Training
Every year in the State of Florida, an average of 705 vessels are involved in reportable incidents in the state. The top three causes are collisions with other vessels, collisions with fixed objects, and sinking. This accounts for over 70% of the total incidents in the state. Also on average, 65 deaths and 406 injuries occur at a cost of $10,540,000.00 per year and with 931,000 boats and watercraft in state waters, these numbers have increased every year. With the increasing number of boaters each year, training is paramount for any person(s) as most primary accident caused are from improper lookouts and operator inexperience. Gulf Coast is here to help bridge that gap!
