HS, my point in asking for the data is that James is/was making some assertions regarding the apparent increase in boaters getting into trouble, most specifically those who are ill-prepared to be out there. If you're going to make these claims then some basic data would be useful.

Even if all the data is not available from all possible sources, surely some sort of statistical support for this claim is required. How about just looking at just one source: USCG, for example. Some evidence ... any evidence, would be useful.
