Safe Boat Operation

THE NAVIGATION RULES: DISCLAIMER

The navigation rules contained in this course summarize basic navigation rules for which a paddler is responsible on inland waterways. Additional and more in-depth rules apply regarding various types of waterways, such as International Waters and Western Rivers, and operation in relation to powered vessels and other watercraft. It is the responsibility of a boat operator to know and follow all of the navigation rules. In those states that Inland Rules do not apply, the equivalent International, Western Rivers or Great Lakes rule(s) may be substituted by the Course Provider.

For a complete listing of the navigation rules, refer to the document Navigation Rules of the Road, available on the web at http://www.uscg.mil/vtm/navrules/navrules.pdf. For state specific navigation requirements, refer to the state laws where you intend to boat.
