Children under the age of 16 years shall not lead boats with a motor larger than 9.9 hp and/or go faster than 10 knots. We are of course not negative to that youth learn to lead in a boat.

- Are they between 15 and 16 years, as will the captain of a ship even get a fine of nok 1,500. They are under the age of 15 so we will contact the parents or the one who has lent away a boat to the minors. When will the parents or the boat owner will receive a fine of 150 million.
We have had close focus on this for the last two weeks and are going to continue this going forward. We hope that our efforts are being noticed so that we can avoid serious accidents where children are involved in the summer.
