New Hampshire has a mandatory boating education law. Everyone 16 years of age and older who operates a motorboat over 25 horsepower on New Hampshire waters must have a boating education certificate.  New Hampshire accepts the following boating education certificates:
A certificate issued by another State agency and NASBLA approved.
A certificate issued by the US Power Squadron.
A certificate issued by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.
An unexpired commercial license issued by the US Coast Guard.
An unexpired commercial license issued by the State of New Hampshire.

Under the provisions of New Hampshire RSA 270-D:14, a "14 Day Temporary Certificate" option will be made available whereby a boater who takes the test and passes it will be issued a boating safety certificate valid only in the State of New Hampshire and for only 14 days. In addition to the 14 Day Temporary Certificate, there are other more permanent options available that are NASBLA (National Association of State Boating Law Administrators) approved and recognized all over the country.

The 14-Day Temporary Certificate is only a short-term solution for your boating certification and it can only be used once. Individuals must be a minimum of 16 years of age to take the test and must get at least 80% to pass the test. If the individual fails, he or she will have the option to take another test at another date or elect to pursue one of the other options for certification. Individuals must provide picture identification at the time of the test.

How did Weirs Beach get its name?

Weirs Beach got its name  from the native Indians.  A long time ago, natives built a basket, call a weir, to catch fish (Shad) that migrated through the Weirs channel.  The constant use of the weirs in the channel led to the name Weirs Beach.

What's in a name?

"Winnipiseogee" is the Native American name for Lake Winnipesaukee, which was the most common named used by the earliest New Hampshire English settlers. The most popular translation of the name is "Smile of the Great Spirit".
