The Center for Limnology manages a small fleet of boats for use by research and educational staff. To arrange for use of the boats, contact one of the following:
Hasler Lab/Madison area: Dave Harring
Users must be certified by the state of Wisconsin for boat use (see below), and will receive additional specific training from CFL staff regarding use of our boats, trailering and transportation, and general maintenance.
Life Jacket Use:
Wisconsin state statues mandates that a person born on or after January 1, 1989, and at least 16 years old may operate a motorboat (including PWC) only if he or she has completed a boating safety course that is accepted by the Wisconsin DNR. Certification training may be done online.
Employees and research staff of the CFL will have the certification fee paid by the research project responsible for their project's funding. Contact Carol Jenkins-Espinosa (Madison area) or Pam Fashingbauer (Trout Lake Station area) regarding payment or reimbursement.
