The Coast Guard recently classified “paddleboards”, meaning Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUPs), as “vessels.” The newly classified vessels must comply with federal Navigation Rules and “carriage” requirements when operated beyond the narrow limits of a swimming, surfing or bathing area. Stand-up paddlers need a USCG-approved life jacket for each person, a sound signaling device (whistle), visual distress signals and navigation lights (flashlight).
The same requirements apply to kayaks and other manually propelled vessels of similar size. Stand-up paddleboards are exempt from hull identification number and registration requirements. Enjoy your SUP, but please do so safely and responsibly.
