Boats that are 16 feet or more in length must carry, in addi- tion to the wearables, at least one throwable (Type IV) flotation. It is a violation, punishable by a f'me of up to $250, to oP- erate a vessel that is 26 feet or les} in length unless every child 11 years of age or younger on board is wearing a Type I, II; HI or V life jack- et. The law does not apply to the operator of a sailboat on which every child under 12 is restrained by a harness teth- ered to the sailboat, or the oP- erator of a vessel on which every child under 12 is in an enclosed cabin. Although California's tem- perate climate alloWS for year-round boating on much of the state's waterways, most boating activity---and there- fore most accidents--occur between May 1 and Sept. 30. The annual National Safe Boating Week begins Satur- day and runs through May 25. The theme for the nation- al campaign is "Be Smart from the Start. Wear Your Life Jacket." " Of all drowning victims in fishing-related accidents in California, 88 percent were not wearing a life jacket or a personal flotation device, said Raynor Tsuneyoshi, Di- rector of the Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW). Capsizing and falls over- board represented 72 percent of angling-related fatalities while 24 percent of those fa- talities, occurred due to over- loading or improper loading, such as sitting or standing on the gunwale, the bow or the transom. DBW determined that, of the 25 angllng.related fatalities in 2000, eight were found to be alcohol-related. "What we're seeing is prob- lems related to improper loading or overloading," said Tsuneyoshi. "Often, when an angler has a fish on the line, everyone moves to that side of the boat to assist. There is a clearly marked capacity plate on every boat that states the weight or passen- ger limit, and .people should look for it anu unaerstana the numbers to allow a safe and fun outing/ Recently, the DBW has in- creased outreach efforts to boaters from seasonal to year.round in many areas of the state.
