Does maritime law apply to recreational & pleasure boating?
Whether or not maritime law applies to your situation depends on a number of factors. For example, the body of water on which the recreational boat was when the accident occurred must be considered "navigable" — meaning that it could be used for foreign commerce or interstate commerce.
If the body of water in question is a lake that exists within the confines of one state and does not cross another state's borders, for example, then the accident will not be covered by maritime law.
