FINAL BOAT LENGTH RULE
The CSCD voted on the revised boat length rule on June 21st. The new boat length rule allows speed boats to 19 feet, 11 1/2 inches and also requires boats to be physically measured. This revision is the result of a study by a boat length committee started in November 2010. Boat manufacturers have altered their construction methods and designs in recent years allowing for large molded swim boards at the stern of boats affecting overall length which disqualifies many boats from our lakes. The new rule allows for both I-O and inboard boats in the 19'-20' range which were already allowed by the previous enforcement policy using boat titles.
