You are invited to being the crew. Just don't question the inexperienced helmsman.

The upside of your adventures is that you get less inexperienced with each mile logged.

the law is clear; all plesurecrafts without engine ar not requiered to have operator card...all plesure crafts with 9.9hp or less ar not requiered to have operator card...this is regardless of displacement or vesel size...my 1964 28ft sailboat has no engin, I have no intent of optaining the card regardless of how easy it is to get...clearly its a scam.

Wunnerful news. They would need a search warrant to legally come aboard and check your engine HP

You're wrong about the hp requirement. If it is a boat with any motor, you have to have a PCOC. You are confusing the requirements for vessel registration with operator licensing.

Thanks for catching that, I was debating about pulling my engine before coming up this year.

My wife got me a gift certificate to do the test online at BOATsmart! Canada | Official Boating License and Course | Online Boater Exam. It was really informative and I learned a lot. I would tell everyone to use it!

I got mine in 1999. It was easy even in the context of a 12-week "Boating Course" from CPS. I think it should be a lot harder to get and that those not in compliance should have their boats impounded. There are a load of drunken no-nothings on the water. I can stand the drunkenness, but not the ignorance.

Boating Licence Required

Is it true that in northern areas of Canada that residents don't need their Boating Licence.
If so where is the boundary

Once the water stays hard all year round. Moving further north as we speak.

Age-horsepower restrictions do not apply in the Northwest Territories or Nunavut

Getting Started - Transport Canada

PCOCs are still required.
