SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A state agency proposes to change the boating equipment required for canoes, kayaks, rafts and paddleboards in New Mexico.
The State Parks Division proposes regulation changes to drop a requirement that those boaters have a bailing bucket, bilge pump and a length of rope.
Regulations will continue to require people using canoes, kayaks and rafts to wear life jackets but the boats won't need to carry a Coast Guard approved flotation device that could be thrown to someone in the water.
Life jackets will be required for someone on a paddleboard, which are becoming increasingly popular. They're similar to a surf board but powered by people with paddles.
Another change will require a whistle or other sound producing device on canoes, kayaks and other paddle craft.
