I’ve been spending some time working on lake winnipesaukee... the house Im staying at is on the water and has a dock.... I’m aware that I need a NH boaters license to operate on the lake.. but I’ve been researching online a bit and it seems that if I bring my mass registered boat I can operate on the lake as long as its not longer then 30 days? does this mean I wouldn't require the NH boating license to bring my whaler and use it?

Everyone who operates a boat with a motor over 25HP, on NH waters needs to have a boating education certificate, issued by NH, or a boating certificate issued by another state. You can get a temporary certificate, at just about any marina, but it's only good for up to 14 consecutive days and you can only get one in a calendar year. If it works out, register and take the one day class. The NH certificate from the class is good for life, and good in any state.

My son just took the MN class on-line. Cost is $20, payable only if you pass, and it took about 3 hours.
Same website also offers the NH class. www.boat-ed.com
Everything I have read says that there is widespread reciprocity for these classes.

This is the word of the State.
Thanks be to NH
