|Note 1 – Reboarding Device
|A reboarding device is only required if the vertical height that a person must climb to reboard the boat from the water (freeboard) is over 0.5 m (1’8″).
|Note 2 – Flares
| Flares are not required for a boat that:
is operating on a river, canal or lake in which it can never be more than one (1) nautical mile (1.852 km) from shore;
|Note 3 – Bailer and Manual Bilge Pump
|A bailer or manual bilge pump is not required for a boat that cannot hold enough water to make it capsize or a boat that has watertight compartments that are sealed and not readily accessible.
|Note 4 – Navigation Lights
|Navigation lights are only required if you operate the boat after sunset, before sunrise or in periods of restricted visibility (fog, falling snow, etc.).

|Note 6 – Radar Reflectors
|Radar reflectors are required for boats under 20 m (65’7″) and boats built of mostly non-metallic materials. A radar reflector is not required
the boat is used in limited traffic conditions, daylight and favourable environmental conditions, and where having a radar reflector is not essential to the boat’s safety;
the small size of the boat or its operation away from radar navigation makes it impossible to install or use a radar reflector.
