Boating and other water activities are favorite pastimes in Missouri and Kansas. The operators of boats, personal watercraft or anything else you can put in the water all have a responsibility to make safety their top priority. When people get careless and accidents happen, it puts the lives of innocent people at serious risk of injury or death.
