Rhode Island Boaters, did you know that . . .

Rhode Island boaters, did you know that . . .

  • R.I. DEM Officers can stop and board your boat?
  • If born after January 1, 1986, you must pass an approved boater education course?
  • Children under 13 years old on a boat less than 65' must wear a PFD while underway?
  • All Rhode Island waters have been declared "No Discharge" zones?

This is just a sample, they're plenty more rules and regulations and they're plenty of exceptions. Take a look at the Rhode Island government's websites to read all of them and/or speak to your admiralty attorney to make certain you understand the current boating rules and regulations. Naturally, DON'T rely on this blog post and double-check the above to make certain you understand the current law.

Point is, be aware that boating in Rhode Island state waters require you follow important navigational rules.

Underway and making way.
