SUGARLOAF – Rep. Mike Cabell (R-Luzerne), along with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, will offer a basic boating safety course on regulations and requirements this Saturday, March 4, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Nescopeck State Park, 1137 Honey Hole Road, near Drums. The event will be held at the park’s Raphael J. Musto Visitors and Environmental Education Center.

“Warmer days are just around the corner, and this is a great chance to receive the necessary safety training required to enjoy the many recreational opportunities available on our region’s waterways,” said Cabell. 

The course is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. Students who successfully complete this course on boating may apply for a Boating Safety Education Certificate. Such certificates are required for all operators of personal watercraft, regardless of age, and for boat operators born after Jan. 1, 1982, who operate motorboats of more than 25 horsepower.

To pre-register for the course, email alupacchin@pa.gov. Please include your name and phone number.
