If you are operating a vessel and know (or reasonably should have known) that you have been involved in an accident involving death, personal injury, or damages to property, you must:

  • Immediately stop at the scene of the accident and...
  • Render any assistance that you are capable of giving to the occupants of the other vessel involved in the accident and...
  • Give your name and address, the vessel registration number, and the name and address of each occupant to the operator or owner of any other vessel, any injured person, and the owner of any damaged property.

If you are not able to give the above information due to a person’s injury, location, inability to comprehend, or any other cause, this information must be given to a Marine Patrol officer or other police officer with jurisdiction arriving at the scene of the accident or immediately to an officer at the nearest police station or at Marine Patrol headquarters.
