The Motorboating Merit Badge Skill Center is for Scouts age 12 and older. Scouts should bring their Red Card and Motorboating merit badge book and dress for the weather.
Learning to be a safe boater is a lot like learning to be a safe driver. You need to know the nautical “rules of the road” as well as federal, state and local laws and obey them.
In this merit badge center, you will learn about boating safety, nautical signs and signals, boat handling and seamanship, weather, services and emergencies and care of the boat, motor and boating equipment. There will be oral requirements and time to get out in the water in a motorboat.
