If you’ve already lost your Card, then you know the benefit of having a back-up on hand. Keep one in your wallet, one on each of your boats and one for back-up. Remember: You MUST carry an original Pleasure Craft Operator Card on board at all times or you risk a $250 fine. Photocopies of your Operator Card are not considered to be legal proof of competency. BOATsmart! Cards are valid across Canada and recognized in the United States.
