Re: USCG 2011 Boating Statistics

You're obviously correct and I was only trying to make a point that the statistics provided were somewhat lacking and we tend to read into them what we already believe. It should be intuitive to everyone that lack of training, lack of preparation, lack of judgement, and overindulgence in alcohol while performing complex tasks are all bad things.
