As we enter into Memorial Day weekend,  there are sure to be many boats out on Lake Burton, Lake Rabun, and Seed Lake.  We hope that everyone observes these basic rules:

  • Operate your boat on the right side of the lake as if you were on a road.
  • Do not operate any watercraft after dark without navigation lights.
  • No Skiing, Tubing, Wakeboard or operating PWC’s after sunset. It is the law!
  • Please be respectful of boat church this weekend, and each weekend until Labor Day. Watch your speed and wake while boat church is in session.
  • All boats should have a Coast Guard Approved Life Jacket for each person on board. Children 12 years of age and under must wear a Coast Guard Approved Life Jacket while the boat is underway. (Swimmies for the little ones do not count unless it has a tag that says “Coast Guard Approved “)
  •  A valid operable fire extinguisher should be on board every boat.
  • Wake boats, Surfboats, and Ski boats: Empty ballast tanks when not towing riders.
  • Be mindful of large wakes and the impact on other boaters as well as docks, boathouses, and shoreline.
  • Remember the Golden Rule!
