Boat Decal Disposed
A new law passed recently repeals the previous 2011 requirement for the rules decal.
Watercraft owners are no longer required to place the silver and black decals, which includes a summary of the state's AIS laws, on their boats.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources began distributing the decals earlier this year and will continue to distribute them to interested boat owners for informational purposes only. Although the decal is no longer mandatory on boats, it is still provides helpful information about the AIS laws. Boaters who have decals can still place them on their boats, trailers, or other water-related equipment as a reminder.
