Perhaps you are a deckhand on a tugboat that operates on the Mississippi River. You are new to this kind of work and unfamiliar with maritime law.
Warm weather is on the way, which means you may be getting ready to take your boat out soon. Whether you use your boat for recreational or professional purposes, it is always vital to be as safe as possible. If you get into a boating accident, you may suffer injuries, financial hardships and emotional trauma.
