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......and welcome. Explain 'the papers' Jamie?? You got us confused.
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.Fair enough. So that is mandatory for sailors as well I assume??
