Did you know that any pleasure craft powered by 10 horsepower or more needs a licence? The license number needs to be displayed clearly on both sides of the bow. It’s important because this number helps
officials from law enforcement and search-and-rescue identify boats in emergency situations. Boat operators must always carry proof of
competency, a copy of their pleasure craft license, and a piece of personal ID on board. You wouldn’t drive a car without insurance
or a license. Make sure you have the right documents before
you launch your boat. Be prepared, know the rules, and be safe.
