    2010 Canadian & U.S. Boating Regulations Links

    Questions about the boating regs. pop up every year and it always seems like it's a new challenge to find the info. So I did what I could to put a list of government links together for everyone on the pwc sites which should take you as close as I can find to the regs you need. Have fun this year.

    Canadian Boating Regulations:
    http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/debs-obs-menu-1362.htm


    U.S. Boating Regulations:

    This is a fairly simple site to work with, just select your state and use the drop menus on the right to find the info you need about your regulations. If you’re like me, you prefer to have that government seal of approval on a print out just encase one of those “know it all” officers tries to argue about a regulation. I’ve heard the water laws can vary from one officer to another so the actual government links listed below should stop them in their tracks. Hopefully it will take away the gray area they try to nail you on when you hand over a print out directly from the states’ archive.
