The Boating Risk Analysis INnformation System (BRAINS) uses the statistical relationships between accident report variables within the U.S. Coast Guard's Boating Accident Report Database (BARD) System to determine the probability that a specific accident could occur given the conditions entered by a user. BRAINS enables those interested in boating accidents to determine the effect a specific variable, or group of variables, have on the probability that a specific accident could occur based on the relationships between variables within the BARD System.

There are two versions of BRAINS available for your use. The quickest version can be accessed right here online.

For more in-depth boating accident analyses, use the downloadable version. This version provides additional tools not found in the online version such as the ability to save your data sets for future re-examination and alterations, enhanced printing & viewing options, and other features.
