Does Maritime Law Apply to Recreational & Pleasure Boating?

Whether or not maritime law applies to your situation depends primarily on one important factor. The body of water on which your accident occurred must be considered "navigable" to enact maritime law. Navigable means that the body of water 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.
