Knowing where the dangers are and how to check for leaking AC electricity in the water could be a lifesaver. Spring is the time to do it, before you put boats and people in the water.
Sadly, each year there are numerous accidents in the waters around boats and docks where AC electrical power is in use.
Last year, at least six deaths and 15 near misses (where the potential victim escaped death) have been identified.
Boat US has several articles on this topic that every boater should be aware of. We encourage you to visit their site at https://www.boatus.com/magazine/2017/april/avoid-electric-shock-drowning.asp
