Similar to motor vehicles, boats are governed by regulations. The Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations includes speed limits, rights of way, lights and signs. The operator of a power boat is also required to have proof of competency and proof of age on board at all times. Those who do not may be subject to strict penalties.
