a
 The numbers for recreational boating safety fatalities in 2000 are raw numbers. Coast Guard reports a 6% addition as instructed by the DOT Inspector General
because it found a discrepancy in a review of the Search and Rescue Management Information System (SARMIS) and BARD data. (See the discussion found in the
DOT FY2003 Performance Plan/2001 Performance Report on pg. 135 under data details of recreational boating fatalities, available at http://www.dot.gov/performance/
as of Feb 10, 2010).
b
  Numbered boats in 1960 is an estimate.
c
  Starting in 2001 only cases where alcohol is determined to be a direct or indirect cause of an accident are reported. Previous years include cases where alcohol was
present but played no role in the accident.
d
  1992 data includes $11 million damage due to a boat fire.

NOTES
Only a small fraction of property damages and nonfatal accidents are reported to the U.S. Coast Guard.
On July 2, 2001, the Federal threshold of property damage for reports of accidents involving recreational vessels changed from $500 to $2,000.
