    The only one I have heard about is to require safety courses, like taking hunter safety to get a hunting license. It was to be phased in by age I think, and grandfather in anyone with an existing boat registration? Does this sound like what you have heard, or is it something different?

    I haven't heard of it but I'm all for it. A boat, like a car, can be a deadly weapon. Some people seem to think that since there are no white lines on a lake that they can do whatever they want.
