Boat Safety

The rules, regulations and requirements contained in CCU's Guide for Safe Boating Operations and Forms (PDF) apply to all persons operating boats under the auspices of Coastal Carolina University. They apply to all vessels owned by or in the custody of Coastal Carolina University. These rules also apply to vessels, regardless of ownership, used on tasks or projects for or by Coastal Carolina University. Any vessel launched from property under the control of Coastal Carolina University must follow these rules.

Approved Boat Operators will normally be restricted to faculty, staff, and students of Coastal Carolina University. Other than trainees under the direct supervision of a CCU certified Boat Operator, no individual may participate as a boat operator in a Coastal Carolina University program without Coastal Carolina University Boating Safety Officer's approval.
