As Rep. Christensen says “Under current law a 2 year old can operate a boat independently if it is less than 25 horse power.” Safe Boaters of New Hampshire feels this is an obvious oversight in the law that needs to be addressed.

Rep. Christensen is seeking to close this loophole at the request of the NH Marine Patrol by ensuring that no one under 12 years old can operate any motorized vessel without a certified supervising adult on board. The bill also allows children 12 to 15 to obtain a Safe Boating Certificate in order to operate a boat limited to 25 horsepower or less.
