I would like to know if we're required to carry a paddle on our DB while under power with our outboard. We do have a Minkota/freshly charged battery that stays on board at all times. Also, is there a list of items required out there? Our DB is 16' and has a 5hp kicker. Want to make sure we're leagle. :grin:
If you check out the Oregon State Marine Board website , they'll have all of the requirements there for you. Look in the Oregon boaters manual.
I read the manual a couple of days ago- you'll need a sound producing device, fire extinguisher, and lifejackets, but a paddle is optional safety gear. Check out their site, I'm going from memory.
