Coast Guard saftey course
« on: March 01, 2015, 09:45:35 AM »
Do I have to take this course? Is it required by law or other states to fish in (with a boat)? Does anyone know if this course is available in and around Keny County?
Thanks

depending on your age you may need to take a state safe boaters course. Not a CG course. All states offer safe boating course and most state will honor another states safe boaters certificate. I believe you don't need one if your were born before 1985 in RI. RI DEM offers the course online for $15.00.
