lists what to do and when the accident needs to be reported:
The local sheriff's office or police department needs to be notified of any boating accident when:
-the vessel is deemed a complete loss, or its damage exceeds $2,000.00

-loss of life
-the disappearance of a person where serious injury or death is indicated
