F. Operation By Minors
Minors should always be supervised by an adult when-
ever operating a boat. Many states have laws regard-
ing the minimum age and licensing requirements of
minors. Be sure to check local laws or contact the state
boating authorities for information.
Do not allow anyone near a propeller, even
when the engine is off. Propeller blades can
be sharp and continue to turn even after the
engine is shut off. Do not allow anyone near
the propeller when the throttle is in neutral po-
sition. Accidently engaging the shift can result
in a serious injury or death. (See actual ladder
warning labels and helm boarding ladder warn-
ing label below.)
G. “Rules of the Road”
As a responsible boater, you must comply with the
“Rules of the Road,” the marine traffic laws enforced
by the U.S. Coast Guard. Navigating a boat is much
the same as driving an automobile. Operating either
one responsibly means complying with a set of rules
intended to prevent accidents. Just as you assume
other car drivers know what they are doing, other boat-
ers assume you know what you are doing. Information
regarding navigational rules and the “Rules of the Road”
are discussed in further detail in C-1 & C-2 of the next
Never approach or use ladder when motor is
running. Severe injury or death will result from
contact with rotating propeller.

standards and required safety equipment. You may
voluntarily consent to one of these inspections, and you
are allowed to make corrections without prosecution.
Check with the appropriate state agency or the Coast
Guard Auxiliary for details.
Shut off motor when near swimmers. Severe
injury or death will result from contact with ro-
