South Carolina boasts 2,876 miles of coastal shoreline, the 11th longest in the United States. This coastal shoreline includes the outer coast, offshore islands, sounds, bays, and rivers and it makes South Carolina a beautiful place for boaters of all ages. Unfortunately, with a large boating population, South Carolina boaters are also at an increased risk for suffering serious life-threatening injuries in a boating accident.
In 2017 alone, there were 15 recreational boating fatalities in South Carolina, including fishermen who fell overboard and reckless collisions. When your fun boating excursion turns into a tragic nightmare, do you know where to turn for help?
