Way to go man! was it hard? ::) and if there is any truth to what you stated I should hurry up and get mine like now! can one still do it over the net?

Mike <")))))><
It's not hard, and yes it is still available on the net. It also has the booklet and practice exam.

As far as 2007 goes I haven't heard about it. Last I heard it was by 2009 that all operators of pleasure craft of ANY size will require an operators card. Have I ever been asked for it...no.

Just looked it up on http://www.boaterexam.com

Q. Who needs the Pleasure Craft Operator Card and when?
A. All operators of powered watercraft used for recreational purposes within Canada will eventually require the card.The following three groups of boaters require the card IMMEDIATELY:

* All operators of any powered watercraft under 4m in length (13.1ft)
* All operators of PWC's (i.e.: sea-doos and jet skis)
* All operators of any powered watercraft born after April 1, 1983

As of September 15, 2009 all boaters will be required to have the Pleasure Craft Operator Card in order to operate a powered watercraft. There is no grandfather clause or age exemption – this law applies to all boaters. Powered watercraft includes watercraft fitted with any size motor – even a trolling motor.
