As a boat operator, you’re expected to make sure your vessel carries the required safety equipment and complies with federal and state regulations. Download Federal Requirements for Recreational Boats, a brochure that covers federal laws and equipment requirements for recreational vessels of the United States.

Before you go out on the water, you should leave a Float Plan with someone you trust. To be sure you’ve included all the necessary information, take a look at the Coast Guard Float Plan. You might also want to keep a sample Pre-Departure Checklist on your boat.
