Alcohol And Drugs

Drinking alcohol and using other drugs while boating causes many boating accidents. Using alcohol or drugs by themselves can make your judgment poor and slow your response time—and reduce your ability to respond to dangerous incidents. Using alcohol or drugs increases the effects of sun, wind, waves, vibration, and noise on you. Alcohol and drugs also raise your chances of getting into an accident.
