Is of interest to motor boat owners here. Mr. Hoover says: If you will refer to section 5. you will note that life preservers are not required for any person on motor boats not carry ing passenges for hire, and, therefore, if the operator of a motor boat not carrying passengers for hire, does not see ilt to have a life preserver for his own use It Is not a violation of the law.
