I think he means his pleasure craft operators card, mandatory sometime in October this year for anything with a motor on the water. Not much to it, actually its harder to get a drivers licence.

Welcome......and welcome. Explain 'the papers' Jamie?? You got us confused.
Pleasure Craft Operators Card. Came out in 99, mandatory as of this year on all boats with an engine over 9.9 HP. Supposed to keep the riff raff of the water, you know, the 50 year old guy with the gold chains and the beer, driving the 40' Carver or Sea Ray.

Welcome Jamie and Efalstrem

Fair enough. So that is mandatory for sailors as well I assume??
Only if you have a motor. Friend of mine has an Etchell that he races out of the RCYC. I had a good laugh when I watched the Toronto police marine unit tried to nail him for drinking and boating and operating without an operators card. No motor so none of the rules applied.
