Most insurance carriers offer discounts on boat insurance for proof of satisfactory completion of a NASBLA-approved safe boating course.
In North Carolina, anyone younger than 26 operating a vessel powered by a 10-horsepower or greater motor on public waterways must first complete a NASBLA-approved course or otherwise be in compliance with the boating safety education law.
In South Carolina, that requirement applies to those younger than 16.
