Do boats have to get a smog check?
Are boats required to get smog checks on their engines. Im pretty sure they dont but I just want to be sure.

You are correct, they don't have an emissions check, however, the manufacturers have to meet new discharge and environmental standards. This is particularly true of outboard motors. Good Luck!

No, but new motors do have to meet EPA standards. Here is a link to Mercurys' blurb on EPA and CARB. Interesting stuff!Source(s): Me. Mercury master technician
