That boating industry doesn't regulate themselves.
However, the scuba diving industry DOES, via organizations like PADI, NAUI- oh, you know all the rest.
Anybody with money can go buy a boat and start using it.
Anybody can buy dive gear, but they'll (hopefully) have a tough time getting an air fill or renting a tank without showing proof of training or certification.
And that's the difference. If the scuba diving industry didn't regulate itself, the government would probably step in to do so.
