A friendly reminder there are two more opportunities this month!If you were born after 1/1/98, it is required for any boater to have taken a Boating Safety Course in order to operate a vessel powered by a motor 10hp or more. There just so happens to be a few coming up in Le Claire! Let them know your interest here:

There is also a Boating skills and Seamanship course being scheduled for a later date- make sure to let them know if you are interested in signing up for this as well!

Wondering, what law, what state requires a boating safety course to operate a boat over 10hp ? Also what is the penalty for illegally operating a jon boat with a 15hp motor with no safety course ? , thanks.

It's a chilly day for working on the water! The first part of the 600 dock has been disconnected and moved across Lake Potter for dismantling, with the rest to follow over the coming week. Thanks to Ted's Boatarama for lending us a boat to help with the push! ... See MoreSee Less

We were glad to be able to help!!

For many years of our boating, the 600 dock was where the fun & partying went on! Now we're on the 800 dock, very different!

Are there any plans to replace them in the future?

Good morning! We will begin launching boats tomorrow (a few days earlier than expected), so give us a call if you're looking to get on the schedule! There is limited availability, and Friday we will only have launch availability until 11am. Our normal daily launch window is Monday-Friday, 8am - 3 pm. ... See MoreSee Less
