Course Outline

Missouri law designates these dangerous operating practices as illegal.

Overloading is loading the vessel beyond the recommended capacity shown on the capacity plate installed by the vessel manufacturer.

Riding on the Bow, Deck, or Gunwale is allowing passengers to ride on the bow, gunwale, transom, seat backs, seats on raised decks, or any other place where there may be a chance of falling overboard, unless the vessel has adequate guards or railings. Guards or railings must be at least 6 inches high (not to exceed 18 inches in height) to be considered adequate.
