Rendering Assistance

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the master or person in charge of a vessel is obligated by law to provide assistance that can be safely provided to any individual in danger at sea . The master or person in charge is subject to a fine and/or imprisonment for failure to do so.

If you are involved in a boating accident or come upon an accident that didn't involve your vessel, you must do whatever you can to save the affected people from any danger caused by the accident, as long as that assistance doesn't put you, your boat, or anyone on your boat in serious danger.

When you offer any good-faith assistance and the person doesn't object to your assistance, you are not liable for civil damages that result from your help as long as you are acting the same way any ordinary, reasonable, and prudent person would have acted under the circumstances.
