Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes which means there are 10,000 opportunities to enjoy a day out on the boat. Boating is one of Minnesota’s greatest pastimes with everyone flocking to the water during the summer. However, because of this widespread use of boats, Minnesota has one of the highest fatality and boating accident rates on the water.
