Which Safety Devices Must Be On All Recreational Boats in North Carolina?

State boating laws mandate that all boats used for recreation must include a personal flotation device for every person aboard. Boats 16+ feet in length must have a throwable Type 4 personal flotation device aboard. All of those 12 or younger must wear a life jacket when the boat is moving. Boats at night must have display lights illuminated from sunset to sunrise.
