2018 Recreational Boating Statistics

It's worth at least a quick look at the tables and graphs.
USCG annual report on 2018 Recreational Boating Statistics
If you want a very quick look go to Table 1 - 2018 Executive Summary on page 7

Those alcohol numbers are chilling.

Wonder what the relevance of PFDs to hypothermia and CO poisoning is?

Yes, alcohol can be a real problem. CO poisoning sometimes can be related to teak surfing where they hang onto the swim platform while the boat is accelerating and breathe in the exhaust. Several years ago on the Colorado River lakes it was a pretty big issue. So some of the CO poisonings would be wearing a PFD and some are just people in boats breathing exhaust from engines and generators.
