In an effort to keep people and waterways safe during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the South Carolina Division of Natural Resources (SCDNR) Law Enforcement Division will conduct courtesy boat inspections at boat landings around the state on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Sept. 3, 4 and 5. Officers want to do everything possible to keep boaters out of harm’s way.

SCDNR officers will perform quick but thorough inspections for required safety equipment and proper boat and motor registration. Those who are not in compliance with safety regulations or registration requirements will not be ticketed during the complimentary inspections. Instead, they will certainly be given an opportunity to correct the problem before they launch their boat. SCDNR officers may also be available to answer questions and give boaters tips on how to stay safe on the water.

To report boating violations such as reckless operation or an intoxicated boat operator, call the SCDNR toll-free, 24-hour hotline at 1-800-922-5431. For a copy of South Carolina’s sailing regulations, to find away about local boating safety courses or to obtain a free float plan form, contact the SCDNR Boating Safety Office in 1-800-277-4301 or visit the Boater Education page .
