Chart 3
Accidents by Time of Day

Total Accidents = 906

The majority of boating accidents occurred between 12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. with the largest number occurring between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Time on this chart is represented by a 24-hour clock. Time is counted normally through the noon hour. After noon, add 1:00 for each additional hour up to 24:00 (midnight). Thus 2:00 p.m. is shown as 14;00 (12:00+2:00), etc.
