Section 1547.26 | Requiring anchor and line.


All watercraft, except sailboats less than sixteen feet long having a cockpit depth of less than twelve inches and except canoes, shall carry an anchor and line of sufficient weight and length to anchor the watercraft securely. The chief of the division of parks and watercraft, by rule, may exempt other types of watercraft from this section after determining that carrying such an anchor and line would constitute a hazard.

No person shall operate or permit to be operated any watercraft on the waters in this state in violation of this section.
