Why don't boaters use dashcams?

It seems that a small dashcam can record lots of information and keep it for a decent period of time, cycling around when it fills the SD memory card. If you got a dual dashcam, it would record the bow view and the helm station too. Seems like a good idea, even though it won't fix the situation, it will let you go over what happened later and what could be done better if put in the situation again.

Some do, and sometimes it catches the action, like this one on the Columbia River last summer.

Oh I agree, but call the CG afterward giving them the boat information that was operating in a reckless manner..

Strong steel boat is nice...they sink too! Marine board of inquiry won't really care what your hull is made of Mark.
