I rented a pleasure 60HP boat on the weekend and was having a blast with it but they didn't ask me if I had a boat license.Do you operate a motorized watercraft? Then you need the Pleasure Craft Operator Card. Without it, you risk a $250 fine. Get the Card today and be prepared to get on the water this weekend. http://www.boaterexam.com/canada/
Is it required or no?
PS. Tides were calm and going at WOT speed was pretty damn awesome.
How do you determine how fast you can go in a boat with the tides?
For example, if wind speed is 0, tides are 0ft (deeming there are no wakes around), I can pretty much go as fast as I want since the water is smooth like a mirror.
If the wind is 7knots, waves will be about 2ft.
If the wind is 16knots, waves will be about 4ft.
If the wind is 21knots, waves will be about 6ft.
