Boating is not all fun and games.

There are serious hazards that can destroy your boat and you along with it.

Check out this boat vs. dam video and see how quick things can go from bad to worse.

ViralHog shared a video on Facebook that should strike fear into every boater’s heart. If you are not careful it could happen to you too.

Low head dams and other water obstacles can make their own whirlpools and crazy currents. Get any watercraft stuck in the vortex and you are in for serious trouble. These guys did and paid the price of a boat and luckily not their lives.

Always watch for water obstacles and be aware of your surroundings when boating. Accidents can happen fast if you fail to heed the warnings that every boater should be aware of.
