  A United States Coast Guard report says America's waterways are safer than ever.    Some 651 people were killed in boating accidents in 2012, the lowest number of boating fatalities on record.   There was also a slight decrease last year in the number of injuries, and the total number of boating accidents.    That's all good news.    But the U.S. Coast Guard reminds all boaters to act responsibly on the water, wear a life jacket, take a boating safety course, get a free vessel safety check, and avoid alcohol consumption.   Alcohol use is a leading factor in fatal boating accidents.    And 85-percent of those who died from drowning were *not* wearing a life jacket.
