Recently, boating accidents have been increased every year. The carelessness of officers, many marine weather factors have a great influence on the boating accidents. Especially, the number of marine accident is governed by wind speed, atmospheric pressure, water temperature, wave height and wave period. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the effect of marine weather factors on boating accident. We use the data of boating accident, marine weather factors (wind speed, atmospheric pressure, water temperature, wave height and wave period), time zone and day of the week in 2018. We did statistical analysis using logistic regression analysis and decision tree analysis. These prediction models may be used to predict the boating accident according to the marine weather condition.
