Common Tampa Area WatercraftYou may encounter any number of seaworthy craft while in the water. Examples include:
- Shrimping Boats
- Fishing Boats
- Charter Boats
- Cruise Ships
- Motor boats
- Jet Skis
Because there are so many types of water vessels about in the Tampa-area the chances of an accident occurring are raised. Inexperienced people operating a powered watercraft can lead to an accident since driving a boat is so completely different than an automobile. Even experienced boaters can have trouble since for many people, it’s not a daily activity. Much like motorcycle accidents, boating accidents can be severe since there is limited protection and passengers can easily be ejected from a boat or become injured by a running propeller. Also, just like land accidents, boaters too can be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while operating their vessel and create an accident.
