Boating Accident Report Form

The operator or owner of a vessel involved in an accident must file a written report with the Oregon State Marine Board if:

  • A person dies, disappears, or is injured and receives medical treatment within 48 hours of the accident or …
  • Within 10 days when damage to property exceeds $2,000.

Passengers are responsible for reporting the accident if the operator is physically incapable of doing so.
