Jeppesen, with the participation of its consumer-oriented Alliance for Safe Navigation partners, published a white paper that examines common causes of boating accidents, property loss and injury.

With the publication, Jeppesen seeks to educate boaters about the most basic way to improve safety at sea - by making sure they set off with up-to-date navigation charts.

"The evidence clearly shows that too many boaters are sailing with old, outdated charts (or none at all), and that this contributes to an unacceptable number of grounding accidents in the U.S. each year," said Jeppesen business development executive Ken Cirillo.

The paper, "Boat Smart, Update Your Charts," is available at no charge to the marine industry, boating organizations and the public by contacting Jeppesen or going to www.jeppesen.com/boatsmart.
