Safe Boat Operation

Rules and Regulations

 

Obey the following rules when towing a water-skier– it’s the law:

  • A spotter must be in the boat at all times
  • The towing vessel must be equipped with an extra seat for each person that is being towed in case an emergency recovery is necessary
  • Only personal watercraft designed to carry three or more people can be used for towing a water-skier
  • The person being towed must wear an approved flotation device (a ‘ski belt’ is not considered to be an approved flotation device)
  • The towing vessel cannot be operated by remote control
  • Do not tow water-skiers between one hour after sunset to sunrise
  • It is a criminal offence, as governed by the Criminal Code of Canada, to tow a person after dark
