Author Topic: Small Vessel Monitoring & Inspection Program

Does anyone understand this and does it apply to small fishing boats (12ft and less)

for info

If you use a motor it does.

even an electric motor. the morons in ottawa tried to legislate seadoes but didn't want to be obvious. we therefore have to take the test to fish. what beaurocratic bs.

Thanks for you feedback. I'm quite shocked and I'm sure many folk are unaware of this. How will they ever govern this, when was the last time you had to show your fishing licence?

I suppose I could get the oars out except they may say these are mechanical devices and therefore count as an engine.........

Has anyone gone through the process?

Just to clairify that this applys to commercial vessels only!

" The law says a vessel must have an inspection and a safety certificate prior to entering service. If you own or operate a small commercial vessel that has not yet been inspected by a Transport Canada Marine Safety Inspector, it's your responsibility to arrange for an inspection.

i didn't check the link and assumed you were talking about the operators permit. you basically need an operators permit to operate any boat with a motor. there were some grandfathering clauses originally but now i think we all need one. i am not going to give them the satisfaction though. i'd like to see them prosecute me for my elctric motor!

I have another post regarding the Operators Card. Do some comments there please
