Vt boaters reminded of marine laws
WATERBURY — The Vermont State Police Marine Division is urging the state’s boaters to remember the laws that govern boating.
Among the highlights are requirements that all vessels have a Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device for each person on board and that children under age 12 wear a flotation device at all times while a vessel is underway.
It is also against the law for anyone to operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any combination of both.
People born after Jan. 1, 1974, must have successfully completed an approved boating safety education course to operate any motorized vessel, including a personal watercraft.MORE IN This Just InWASHINGTON — Two senior Islamic State group leaders were killed in U.S. Full StoryVATICAN CITY — Pope Francis rightly got credit for helping bring the U.S. Full StoryMAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Islamic extremists killed 35 people and kidnapped at least 185 in an attack...
