A South Carolina bill which would increase the distance between a personal watercraft or vessel and a moored vessel or person in the water has been pre-filed by U.S. Rep. Chip Huggins. This bill would require 100 feet and idle speed between a personal watercraft or vessel and a moored or anchored vessel, dock, person in the water or within 100 yards of the Atlantic coast line. The South Carolina legislature comes back into session on January 12, 2016. For more information please contact David Dickerson, ddickerson@nmma.org.
