Boating Guide


It is the duty of the operator of a vessel involved in a collision, accident, or other casualty to give his name, address, and identification of his vessel in writing to any person injured and to the owner of any property damaged.

The operator of every vessel involved in a boating accident is required to file a written report in duplicate, whenever a boating accident results in loss of life, disappearance of a person, loss of consciousness, medical treatment, or disability for more than 24 hours, or property damage in excess of $500. Reports in death, disappearance, and injury cases must be made within 48 hours; reports of other cases are required within five days. Reports shall be submitted to:

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission
Box 30370
Lincoln, NE 68503.

The owner of a vessel shall be liable for any injury or damage caused by negligent operation of any powered vessel. The owner shall not be liable if the vessel is being used without the consent of the owner unless the operator is a member of his immediate family.
