The boating laws of your state tell which types of law enforcement officers have the right to stop your paddlecraft at any time to check that you are obeying federal and state laws. The U.S. Coast Guard also has the right to enforce boating laws on federal waters. Always treat law enforcement officers with courtesy. Check with your state’s boating agency to find out about enforcement officers and requirements for compliance.
