    New York State Law for PWC Operator

    Just wanted to post New York State Law for PWC Operator as the 2010 AJC Ride For Masons Future is coming up and want to make sure everyone knows New York State Law.

    PWC Operation - Education is Mandatory for All PWC Operators:
    •All personal watercraft operators must take an 8-hour classroom based boating safety course and successfully complete the proctored exam before they can operate a PWC on any waters of New York.
    •Programs offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the U.S. Power Squadrons are acceptable.
    •Young boater safety certificates previously issued by New York State satisfy the educational requirements.
    •All PWC operators must be a minimum of 14 years old - no one under the age of 14 may operate a PWC.
    •No one under the age of 16 may rent a personal watercraft. Those under 18 years of age wishing to rent a personal watercraft must possess a boating safety education certificate.

    Boating safety course can run you anywhere from $50-$70, Not sure how many know this but on Long Island check with your local Public Library as many of them give the Boating safety course, prices are different from library to library, from FREE to $60. If you need the course check ASAP as this is about the time they give them.

    NOTE:
    Online boating safety courses and certificates obtained from online courses, such as the one offered by the BoatU.S. Foundation, are NOT recognized by the state of New York or on-water enforcement officers. In order to operate a PWC in New York, you must take a proctored classroom course and exams approved by the New York Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation and carry the official New York boating safety certificate aboard while in operation.
