SCDNR to hold boat inspections on Labor Day weekend

From staff reports 

Officers with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) Law Enforcement Division will be holding a courtesy boat inspection from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 4 at Battery Creek Landing in Beaufort. 

SCDNR officers will perform a quick, but thorough, inspection of boats to make sure they have the required safety equipment and proper boat and motor registration for the watercraft before its owners launch. These inspections are completely voluntary and are not required before launching. 

Boaters who take advantage of the inspection and are found to not be in compliance with safety regulations or registration requirements will not be ticketed during the complimentary inspections. 

Instead, boaters will be given an opportunity to correct the problem before they launch their boat. 

SCDNR officers will also be available to answer questions and give boaters tips on how to stay safe on the water.
