ACT update....

Motor boats are not permitted to be used on Lakes without a special exemption from the National Capitol Authority. I have seen electric motors being used on small boats, not sure if that is OK or not.

Any sail boats with auxillary motors need a "Boating Permit" which is free but you need to take your boat to the water police for a check of your safety gear. Then you just need to submit your form and 'ta da' some permit stickers arrive in the mail.

Boats do not need to be registered. Trailers do.

Quote:
Use of Power Boats on Lake Burley Griffin
A permit to use a power boat on Lake Burley Griffin (Attachment A) may be issued by the NCA
in conjunction with an approved event or activity.
The number of power boat events on Lake Burley Griffin each year is not predetermined. Each
power boat event application will be assessed against the event assessment criteria prior to
approval from the NCA.
Conventional power boats and other types of powered craft may be permitted on the Lake, as
set out in the permit categories. Non-powered craft do not require a permit. Permit categories
are as follows:
C1 PERMIT CATEGORY 1
• ‘Conventional’ (ie petrol-driven) power boats used as rescue, coaching or judging boats
in support of aquatic sports.
• Power boats specifically used as part of an approved event or training activity.
C2 PERMIT CATEGORY 2
• Electric and solar powered boats; and
• Trailerable yachts with auxiliary power.
C3 PERMIT CATEGORY 3
• Boats used for Lake management, scientific research or other specified non-recreational
uses (generally ‘conventional’ power boats); and
• ‘Special interest’ boats. Power boats that can justify access to the Lake for special
reasons other than just recreation for the owners. This category includes steam or
petrol-powered traditional boats which can support a case for access on aesthetic
grounds by adding an element of interest because of their special character.
C4 PERMIT CATEGORY 4
• Power boats (e.g. ferries) for commercial tourist use.


Cheers
Vic
