BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Kayaks, canoes, rowboats, sail boats and power boats all need an inspection before they can legally float in Lake Whatcom and Lake Samish.

The boat inspection program starts tomorrow.

Canoeists and kayakers don’t have to pay for a permit if they take an online aquatic invasive species awareness course.

Motorboats owners get a $10 rebate on their $50 permit if they take the course.

Inspections began last year as a way to battle mussels and other invasive species that have been making their way into lakes.
