Boating Accidents, Crashes, and Mishaps videos
Here is a collection of amazing videos of boating crashes, accidents, and mishaps.
This is a good educational list of things NOT to do while boating.
Enjoy the videos and we hope that you learn from their mistakes!
Choppin’ the Top
In this case, it was found that the bridge operator was at fault. If you watch the
video closely, you see that the bridge starts to lower before the vessel has fully
cleared. You can read the
Marine Investigation Report for more details about this accident.
It seems like someone should have seen this coming — another reason why it
is so important to take a boater education course and know the nautical rules of the
road before heading out.
Too much speed, too much wake, not enough common sense = whiplash!
Boat Versus Dock
The Drunken Sailor
This small sailboat is about to cut in front of a large ferry boat.
(Kudos to the announcer for calling 'em like he sees 'em.)
Water Sky Machine
In retrospect, when you put a jet engine into a lightweight boat, you should probably expect it to fly.
The Wave Hopper
Total Boat Meltdown
A drag boat totally disintegrates...
Hooterboat Takes a Wreak
Luckily no one seems hurt, although the official at the sidelines barly misses being crushed.
Sailboat Versus Pier
Straight Outta Drydock
It’s Beach Time!
Missouri Boat Crash
A Guy, a Boat, a Beer!
