Tragedy Leads to USCG Warning About "Texas-Style" Flats/Bay Boats

May 12, 2016

The United States Coast Guard has issued a warning to consumers regarding "Texas-style" flats/bay boats. These boats typically have less freeboard and a higher center of gravity than traditional boats. The Coast Guard warns that the weight placement and center of gravity in this style of boat is causing them to spin out of control unexpectedly. The boats have been associated with multiple injuries and deaths. This is a link to an article discussing one such tragedy as well as a copy of the video produced by the USCG describing its testing and associated findings.
