Data on the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of fatal recreational boating accident victims were assembled for four states with reasonably good reporting on BAC between 1980 and 1985. In all there were data on BAC for 370 dead boaters. Of these victims, roughly 30 percent had BACs above 0.10 percent, which is considered intoxicated on the highways. Another 20 percent had BACs between 0.04 and 0.10 percent, which indicates some alcohol-induced impairment. Elevated BACs were found to be significantly associated with accidents on Friday or Saturday night, males, two or more persons on the boat, and calm water conditions. Keywords: Statistics. (KT).
