* An accident is considered reportable if: a person dies, disappears, or is injured requiring medical attention beyond first aid; damage to a vessel or other property damage exceeds $500; or there is complete loss of a vessel. Not all accidents are reported to the Department, due to either nonobserverance or ignorance of the reporting law.

** The increase in boating accidents in Orange County when compared with accident totals appearing in previous reports is not due to an increase in accidents, but rather an increase in the reporting of accidents to the Department.
