River boat on Sedgefield lagoon

Unread post by Rovcra » Mon Mar 21, 2016 8:22 am

Hi Guys,
I bought a small river boat, no cabin, with a 8HP motor for my son as he loves to go fishing in Sedgefield. My question is , do I need to register it anywhere to be able to use it on the lagoon?, I know he does not need a skippers licence as it is below 15HP and only used on the lagoon. What equipement if any is mandatory for this type of boat?. Please advise.
Many thanks. :dance:

Dear Rovcra,

Welcome to the forums :thumbs_up: .

I hope the following will help:

Paddle-boats, rubber-ducks, yachts, catamarans, motor-boats and canoes are allowed on the water.

They all require permits. You need them because they also inform you of various regulations including where you are allowed to go and about the need to wear life-jackets.

As Sedgefield falls under Knynsa Municipality, if you get your permit from Thesen Island it also gives you access to the Knysna Lagoon.
Always be humble and understanding.
