    New North Carolina boating law 1-01-2010

    North Carolina Senate Bill 43 was ratified by the General Assembly and signed by Gov. Beverly Perdue last Friday. The law requires boaters born on or after Jan. 1, 1984, to be certified by passing a boating safety course before they can operate any water craft with a 10 horsepower-or-larger motor.
    The law pertains to all bodies of water in North Carolina and not just Lake Norman.
    Jeff Stewart of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Division 26 told the Lake Norman Marine Commission on Monday that the bill is a watered down version of the original. The auxiliary had wanted certification to be required for boaters of all ages with a $100 penalty for violators.
    The new law subjects violators to court costs only

    Sounds a lot like what we have here in Jersey. What's odd is that it does not apply to rentals...

    similar to what we have in south africa. Mandatory skipper licenses for all boat operators. Best part is NO RENTALS to give jetskis a bad name.
