Health Tip: Drinking and Boating Don't Mix

(HealthDay News) -- In most states, laws for drinking and boating are similar to those governing drinking and driving.

Boating laws apply to most any boat, including canoes, kayaks and rowboats. Alcohol is the top contributor to boating accidents, says the American Addiction Centers.

Drinking and boating increase your chances of drowning, falling off the boat and driving recklessly.

There is no safe amount of alcohol for a boat operator, the addiction group says.
