Requirements for Skiers and Tubers
In addition to adhering to laws as they apply to all boats, boat operators towing a person(s) on water-skis, tube, a surfboard, a saucer, or a similar device must obey these laws also.
- The skier towed must wear a PFD or there must be a PFD carried on board the boat for the skier. It is strongly recommended that anyone being towed wear an impact-tested PFD designed for water-skiing.
- Water-skiing and similar acts are prohibited between one hour after sunset and sunrise the next day. PWCs may tow or operate only between 9:30 am and one hour before sunset.
- Water-ski tow ropes may not be longer than 150 feet in length unless a permit is obtained from the county sheriff.
