Boat safety checks

The owner of the boat stated that his vessel was not registered in his name to which he was issued a CSA violation notice warning and warned concerning the $288 fine. The owner of the boat was unaware of the fine and confirmed he would register the boat right away.
On April 10th, 2022 at 4:07 PM Quadra RCMP received a report of an abandoned 911 from a cell phone. The cell phone had dialed 911 and was mapping to different areas each time it dialed. Officers located the owner of the phone on a bike, and it was confirmed the multiple dials were accidental in nature. The owner of the cellphone was very apologetic with officers but was thankful for the quick response.
