Yes, even if not required the boater's safety class is a good idea.

I thought it was 25' not 25HP

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

25hp and born before 1986. If you were born after 1986 and it's less than 25 you still need the license.

This is not correct.

Boating Safety Education Certificates are required:

*To operate a personal watercraft
*For persons born on or after January 1, 1982, to operate boats powered by motors greater than 25 horsepower.


I was born in 1987 and have a flat bottom with a 25HP and until this summer I operated my boat with out a boaters safety certification. I've been stopped many times for routine checks and was 100% legal.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen
