In Minnesota, there is one boat for every six people living in the state, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. With more than 900,000 registered boats, the “land of 1,000 lakes” has the largest number of boats per capita in the United States. However, having a large number of accessible waterways and an even larger number of boats on those waterways contributes to Minnesota’s growing number of boating accidents each year.
In 2007, the U.S. Coast Guard reported that 685 people were killed in boating accidents, while 3,673 people were injured. Of those people, 15 were killed in Minnesota boating accidents and 105 were injured.
