Default NWT Rules

Can any one tell me how rule number 8. works if your running a tiller boat after running to your fishing spot and you want to troll with the big motor because you don't have a kicker. The way I see the rule you need to wear your life jacket and be hooked up to your kill switch. Can this be true?

8. Safety
Safe boating must be observed at all times.
Each contestant is required to wear a fastened U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation
device anytime the primary combustion engine is in operation from boat check until weigh-in
each day of the tournament.
All boats must be equipped with an emergency ignition-shutoff device that must be securely
attached to the driverís body whenever the primary combustion engine is in operation. A driver
must be seated behind the steering wheel or at the tiller and in full control of the boat whenever
the primary combustion engine is in operation and in gear. Each boat is required to have a fully
functional marine band radio.

That rule is in the spirit of "above idle speed"....meaning on plane. Call the office and have it clarified directly. They don't answer questions on this message board.

agree with Juls. Has to be on plane. But I would call and be sure to get a complete understanding.
