New boating laws on stops, operation take effect

A_11HCFD_226F_7156

New laws have taken effect that no longer prohibit bow riding. Marine officers can no longer pull you over merely if someone is safely riding on your bow, as it does not constitute a danger to any person outside of the vessel.

Another new change allows boats who are stopped for safety equipment checks to receive a new state sticker free of charge when they pass.
