I have noticed, over the years I have been lurking and posting here, that you North American 'boaties' sure have to comply with a lot of regulations, some of which seem to fall into the plain common-sense basket.

I can understand the need for this if you were operating a boat hire business, but for private boat owners who is this aimed at, your passengers? Are owners of boats over 40' more inherently negligent when it comes to the environment.

FWIW over my 30 odd years of boating some of the worst offenders I've seen are the small hire boats, full of day trippers and their fishing gear, some of which is often left behind in plastic bags.Plastic bags, now that is a real potential environmental villain.

We are a nation of lawyers and lawyers require laws, the more the merrier.

We also have lots of regulatory agencies, and that means they need to be creating regulations otherwise they are not doing their jobs and could be laid off.

The saving grace to all this is that none of this stuff is actually enforced very effectively if at all. So we are the "home of the free" because everyone is pretty much free to ignore whatever regulations and laws they want. The chances of us getting caught doing this are so slim as to make it totally worthwhile to ignore the regulations which are generally obstructive in nature and make it more difficult to do what you want to do.

We've been boarded by the USCG twice. While they were very nice and looked at a lot of stuff, mostly our paperwork, they didn't say a word about the required oil dump placard or the garbage placard or the CO2 placard or the fire extinguisher tags or any of this sort of thing. We happened to have all that but if we hadn't it wouldn't have made any difference.

So yes, we have a lot of regulations but they're mostly to give the people in the regulatory agencies something to do. A jobs program, if you will. If we actually had to obey them it could get annoying and obstructive. But since we don't, it's not a problem even though to someone outside the US all the regulations might appear to be intimidating.

So in my view it's much better to have 10,000 regulations, all of which you can ignore without penalty 99.999 percent of the time than to have 100 regulations that are equally annoying and obstructive but that are enforced all of the time.

In other words, we have the better deal.

Boats over 12 meters (40 feet or so) are also required to carry a copy of the COLREGS/NAVRUES...

I presume this means that the catapult we currently use for waste disposal is no longer legal? Ah well.

This site lets you create your own Waste Management Plan:

I like to visit and look at stuff as I have a long want/wish list, but I am to cheap, and the old stuff still works.
