    Exclamation More New Arizona Rules!

    A couple of other new Rules for Arizona Boaters. These are "Rules" passed by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission, as opposed to laws passed by the legislature. The Commission was given the power to enact rules which clarify and define certain State Laws.

    These are pretty non-controversial, and shouldn't raise the hackles of responsible boaters.

    R12-4-524 Water Skiing - The observer must be physical capable and mentally competent to act as an observer of a water-skier and at least 12 years old. (Note the age of observer is new and the same as California and Nevada’s law.)

    R12-4-526 Unlawful Mooring - An individual shall not moor, anchor, fasten to the shore or secure a watercraft for longer than 14 consecutive days in any public body of water unless:

    The watercraft is moved at least 25 nautical miles from its previous location.

    The waters are a special anchorage area, or authorized for private dock or moorage, or authorized by a government agency that has jurisdiction over the waters. (This is to prevent people from just anchoring or beaching a boat in a cove for extended periods of time. Private houseboats are typically the biggest violators. Note that private docks, private beaches or special anchorages are exempt, as is anyone who has permission from the controlling Govt. Agency for the Lake or area.)

    Just run the lake twice before you stop and you'll be fine.

    Besides, there's no lake at Apache. Right? Right.

    No sweat, I'm the king of being "off topic"!

    Pic was taken in Clear Creek Canyon (home of Cathedral in the Desert), Escalante River, Powell, about 2 years ago. Had to walk the boat over a rock ledge that was barely under water, then up the last 100 ft or so of the canyon to this big sand beach and hill. It was pretty cool...
