2021 SML Visitor Guide - 22

AGE RESTRICTION
No person under the age of 14
may operate a PWC. Those
operators 14 and 15 MUST
show proof of completing an
approved and accepted
boating safety course either in
a classroom or online. The
challenge exam or other
provisions of the Virginia
Education Compliance
Requirement do not meet the
requirements of the age
restriction law.

NAVIGATION LIGHTS
Recreational boats, while
underway, are required to
display navigation lights
between sunset and sunrise
and during periods of
restricted visibility.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER

SAFETY
FIRST

Boats over 26 feet and boats
under 26 feet that meet certain
conditions must have USCG
approved, adequately charged
fire extinguishers aboard.

LIFE JACKETS
There must be a readily accessible, properly
fitting, wearable (Type I, II, III, or V) USCG
approved life jacket for each person on the
boat. Any child under the age of 13 is
required by federal law to wear a life jacket.

BOATING
SAFETY COURSE
Since July 1, 2016, all PWC
operators age 14 and older
and all motorboat operators
regardless of age need to take
a boating safety course
(available in person or online).
A full listing of boating safety
courses near you is available
at www.dgif.virginia.gov.

REGISTRATION
Motorized vehicles must have
a valid registration card
onboard and a validation
decal.

HORN, WHISTLE, OR BELL
Navigation rules require sound signals to
be made under certain circumstances. A
4-second blast audible for 1/2 mile is
required. If you do not have a horn, a
whistle or air horn is acceptable.

TOP TIP
Avoid pulling passengers on water skis, wakeboards or inflatables on
Smith Mountain Lake's main channel. With more than 500 miles of
shoreline, SML offers abundant coves, usually with little boat traffic, that
provide a much safer experience for your water sports fun.
