Boater Safety Courses:

Hello lake property owners and association members,
As I’m sure many of you are aware, there are some new boater safety regulations that will be in effect as we head back to the lake this spring. I have been in touch with the NYS office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. They will be sending the LWLA the new updated regulation booklets. You will be able to pick them up at the EXPO on May 24, 2014. In the meantime, as I see boater safety courses offered that are now a new requirement, I will post them on this website.   Terry Allison, President LWLA

All individuals born on or after 5/1/96 are now required to successfully complete an approved course in boater education in order to operate a motorboat. Approved courses include those offered by NYS Parks, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Leaving New York State Parks or the U.S. Power Squadron Leaving New York State Parks. Individuals less than 10 years of age may not take this course of instruction. Certain allowances to this law have been made for visitors to New York, persons renting a boat from a livery and persons purchasing a new boat for the first time. Please refer to Frequently Asked Questions for more information. Find a Boating Safety Course near you.

Personal Watercraft
Operators may not operate a Personal Watercraft (Jet Ski, SeaDoo, etc.) unless they are at least 14 years of age and hold a boater safety certificate issued by State Parks, the USCG Auxiliary or the US Power Squadron for having completed a an 8-hour classroom based course of instruction.
A person without a safety certificate may operate a PWC when accompanied by someone over 18 years of age who is the holder of a boater safety certificate. For the purposes of this section, "accompanied" shall mean upon the same PWC.

A boating safety certificate issued to a resident of another state or country is acceptable provided the certificate is carried while operating in New York State. Please note the certificate must be issued by the state or country of residence, and should be NASBLA Leaving New York State Parks approved.
