    Yet another CPL question:

    Can someone point me to the Code/Law that allows or prohibits a CPL holder carrying aboard his/her private, powered watercraft?

    Or.....w/o the CPL.....carrying once on board said craft.

    Thanks

    If you have a CPL, you may legally carry on a boat, as long as you're not taking game with the firearm.

    Potentially relevant law:

    Thank you for your reply.

    I see the familiar "...except as otherwise permitted...".

    Does that imply that because it is NOT shown to be ILLEGAL, it is legal?

    I had a retired LEO tell me even HE was not authorized to have a gun aboard his boat.

    Exactly that is how our laws work.. If there is NO law against it then it's legal.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Yes, but the "problem" with our laws is finding the damn things.
