DPTI Media Release - Boating Compliance Patrols
1 December 2016
Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) Marine Safety Officers have kicked off the 2016 summer boating season focusing on keeping boaters safe with patrols on water as well as on land to check safety equipment, boat registration and operator licences.
DPTI Marine Operations Manager, Gordon Panton was pleased to see that most boaters were taking safety seriously and doing the right thing.
“Making sure boaters have correct safety equipment including lifejackets on board for all occupants is always a key focus for our Marine Safety Officers,” said Mr Panton.
“Although not compulsory, we recommend all boaters wear a lifejacket while out on the water and particularly ensure children wear a life jacket.
“Over the weekend we checked nearly 100 boats, and stopped eight from launching until their equipment was safe.
“Another five boats were already on the water and were sent ashore to obtain extra items, it was pleasing that this was mainly for only minor issues of safety equipment not being sufficient.
“Boaters need to be aware of what they need to have to make sure that they and their crew are safe on the water.
“Marine Safety Officers are obliged to send vessels ashore if they don’t have everything in order and a monetary penalty can follow.
“Some operators found that their registration had expired, but were able to renew online before they went out.
“Registration labels are issued for boats, and should be affixed near the steering position so that the operator is always reminded of the expiry date,” Mr Panton said.
Boaters can check their safety equipment requirements by looking online at www.sa.gov.au/boatingmarine or by reading the SA recreational Boating Handbook.
