Important Boating Laws

Boating Under the Influence (BUI) Law: Known as the Jake and Griffin Prince BUI Law," this lowers the blood alcohol concentration for BUI to 0.08, mirroring Georgia's DUI law.

Boater Education Requirement: Known as the "Kylie Glover Boat Education Law," this law requires that anyone born on or after January 1, 1998 who operates any motorized vessel on Georgia waters must complete a boating education course approved by DNR prior to operation of such vessel.

100- Foot Law: Prohibits people from operating any vessel at a speed greater than idle speed within 100 feet from any vessel which is moored, anchored or adrift outside normal traffic channels, or within 100 feet of any wharf, dock, peir, piling, bridge structure or abutment, person in the water, or shoreline of any residence or public use area. It is also illegal for watercraft operators to jump the wake of another vessel within 100 feet. This law has been in effect but is commonly violated by boat and watercraft operators on Georgia waters. Click the link for more information on Boating Laws and Regulations.

New Life Jacket Requirement: Chapter 7 of Title 52 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to registration, operation, and sale of watercraft, is amended by revising paragraph (3) of subsection (d) of Code Section 52-7-8, relating to classification of vessels and required equipment, as follows:

“(3) No person shall operate a moving vessel upon the waters of this state with a child under the age of 13 years on board such vessel unless child is wearing an appropriately sized personal flotation device, as required by this subsection to be on board the vessel. This requirement shall not apply when the child is within a fully enclosed roofed cabin or other fully enclosed roofed compartment or structure on the vessel.”
