Do Recreational Boaters Need Nautical Charts?

Yes! Even experienced boaters who are travelling in familiar waters need to ensure that they have accurate navigational tools on board. Consider these recreational findings:

  • The number of recreational boats owned by Americans has swelled to over 12 million.
  • Accidents and injuries have climbed, and reported property damages have increased to over $52 million.
  • The U.S. Coast Guard receives numerous calls each year from distressed boaters who don’t know where they are, even when they’re in sight of land.
