When renting a boat, the owner of the vessel is fully responsible for instructing hirer about boat operations, safety etc. By law, also the relevant agreement must be signed by the parties on the shore.

Among other pre-cautions, the document also includes a ban on water skiing, which is prohibited 13:00 to 16:00. During other time, water skiing is allowed at a distance of up to 700 m to the shore. The restriction is valid for summer season – from May 1 to September 30.
