Missouri State Highway Patrol Notice
February 24, 2021
In 2020, the Missouri legislature extended the sunset expiration date for the temporary boating safety ID card program until December 31, 2032. The process to obtain the temporary boating safety ID card has been modified. Effective March 1, 2021 the current Missouri State Highway Patrol temporary boating safety ID card will no longer be active, and users will be redirected to https://www.boat-ed.com/missourirental/ This link is for individuals born after January 1, 1984 wanting to operate a rented vessel or a vessel being considered for sale, the option to purchase a one time, seven-day temporary permit to operate a boat on Missouri lakes. Individuals can order and pay for their temporary boating safety ID card on line, complete a boating safety checklist of common boating laws, and acknowledge they have reviewed The Handbook of Missouri Boating laws and Responsibilities. The handbook can be found athttps://assets.kalkomey.com/boater/pdfs/handbook/missouri-handbook-entire.pdf The cost of the temporary boating safety ID card remains at $9. Upon completion the student receives an email with the temporary card which must be carried while operating a boat. If you have already been issued a temporary boating safety ID card and it has expired the individual must complete a NASBLA certified boating safety course at: https://www.boat-ed.com/missouri/ or attend a Missouri State Highway Patrol officer taught class. A list of classes can be found at: https://www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/WP02Web/app/safetyEDClasses
Coast Guard Kill Switches Required by Law Starting in April 2021
Boaters operating vessels under 26 feet long will be required to use an engine kill switch beginning next month, officials said.
The United States Coast Guard announced the new requirement after the law was passed by Congress.
Engine kill switches considerably prevent runaway boat incidents and the deadly threats they pose. An engine cut-off switch is usually a lanyard-style cord that attaches to the person operating the vessel. If a person were to accidentally fall out of the boat, the tension of the lanyard would immediately shut off the motor.
Wireless cut off switches have been developed and are also approved for use. These use an electronic fob that is carried by the driver and senses when it is submerged in water, and automatically shuts off the engine.
Each year the Coast Guard receives reports of recreational boaters who fell out of or thrown from their boat. These incidents have lead to injuries and deaths.
Most of these incidents end with the boat in gear with no one in control, leaving the operator stranded in the water as the boat continues straight or it circles the person in the water — eventually hitting them, often with the propellor.
Runaway boat situations put the ejected operator, other people on the water, marine law enforcement and first responders in serious danger. An overwhelming majority of boats have a kill switch system set up, USCG officials said. So, this new requirement simply obligates recreational boaters to use the safety features already present on their boat.
Here is the official law:
Section 503 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018 required manufacturers of covered recreational boats (less than 26 feet in length, with an engine capable of 115 lbs. of static thrust) to equip the vessel with an ECOS installed as of December 2019. Owners of recreational vessels produced after December 2019 are required to maintain the ECOS on their vessel in a serviceable condition. It is recommended that recreational vessel owners regularly check their existing ECOS system to ensure it works, following manufacturer’s instructions.
Section 8316 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2021 requires individuals operating covered recreational vessels (less than 26 feet in length, with an engine capable of 115 lbs. of static thrust; 3 HP or more) to use ECOS “links.” Using the ECOSL is required only when the primary helm is not within an enclosed cabin, and when the boat is operating on plane or above displacement speed. Common situations where ECOSL use would not be required include docking/trailering, trolling and operating in no-wake zones.
Boaters are encouraged to check the U.S. Coast Guard website for additional information on this new use requirement and other safety regulations and recommendations: https://uscgboating.org/recreational-boaters/Engine-Cut-Off-Switch-FAQ.php
Engine/Propulsion Cut-Off Devices Q1. What is an Engine Cut-off Switch (ECOS)? A1. An Engine Cut-Off Switch is a safety mechanism used to shut off propulsion machinery when the operator is displaced from the helm. Q2. What is an Engine Cut-Off Switch Link (ECOSL)? A2. An ECOSL is the device that connects the operator to the ECOS....
Spring is right around the corner.
Just a quick status report, G & G Marina sustained no damage from the ice and snow. The Lake is thawing and almost ice free on the Little Niangua.
G & G Marina service and parts department will be open beginning Tuesday March 2. The hours for the marina will be 8:30am to 5pm Tuesday through Saturday. Our gas dock will be open from 8:30am to 4pm Tuesday through Saturday.
The Lake is thawing, most of the Little Niangua is ice free. G & G Marina sustained no damage from the storm or ice. Below is an notice in Lake News Online from Ameren about the anticipated changes to the Lake Level. We have also posted a link to the article in Lake News.
"Depending on snowmelt and other conditions, Lake of the Ozarks could see a slight drop down from 653.1 feet above sea level before beginning to see a slow rise. Based on projections from Ameren Missouri the lake could drop several tenths to 652.5 before it stabilizes. Current forecasts put the lake level at 652.9 by Saturday.
Much of what happens will depend on runoff from tributaries from snowmelt and conditions upstream from Truman Dam. An ice jam near Jefferson City that was causing Ameren to continue releasing into the Osage River has broken up allowing for a return to minimum flows. Ameren recognizes the drop to 652.5 is rare and presents challenges for dock owners.
A week after being in the throes of a major winter freeze, Ameren is able to begin looking back to more normal operations. Over the next 6 weeks, the lake level will begin coming back up with lake levels back to 654 by mid-April, according to Warren Witt, head of hydro operations for Ameren Missouri for the Osage Energy Center." https://www.lakenewsonline.com/story/news/2021/02/25/ameren-lake-level-drop-slightly-once-more-before-rise-begins/6830220002/?fbclid=IwAR0UmIrQdIUjH0zTaMb_KPXN8UCbDdLhlw0SYeeugFT8SRRZbR_C_wjSLhE
Ameren: Lake level will drop slightly once more before rise begins Depending on snowmelt and other conditions, Lake of the Ozarks could see a slight drop down from 653.1 feet above sea level before beginning to see a slow rise.
A Letter from Larry Goudy from our customers
It has been a challenging winter, but all is well here at G & G. The phones have been on the answering machine and return calls slow, but we will be working on call backs today. The roads have been bad enough at times to restrict travel as you well know. However, this note is to let you know that the marina is in good shape.
In the mid 70’s the lake froze to about 12” thick and the need for power generation drew the lake down about 6” every 12 hours. The result was the lake was down about 13’ total. We had to spend about 6 weeks moving the docks out in the day and letting them freeze in over night as they were beyond the anchor cables. So, the existing situation is far from what it could be.
A Letter from Larry Goudy to our Customers
Now, a word of caution. As this ice melts there will likely be islands of ice that can be wind and/or current driven. One would not think they could do much damage, but 1” of ice of any appreciable size can weigh enough to damage docks!
The service department is scheduling appointments but remember that some hoists may not have enough water depth to launch boats. Keep the shop advised as best you can. We appreciate you all and Thank You for your patience.
