Small Government-Owned Reservoirs

On some smaller government-owned reservoirs, motorboats are limited to a maximum of 10 horsepower. Motorboats with more than 10 horsepower must have the propeller removed or have the motor raised to the maximum trailerable limit while operating on these reservoirs.

Local Regulations

Local waterways may have specific equipment and operational restrictions in addition to those covered in this chapter. Be sure to check for local regulations before you go boating.
