There’s another (large) thread on this topic elsewhere here on MFF.

Do a search.

the seating in my boat is plastic stackabe chairs, i can only imagine how many hit the cabin head first with a wireless screwing up at 35 mph. it would have to be wireless on a trolling boat, can these be turned off at trolling speeds

looked more into it, trolling is ok.  my 19 foot boat was built under commercial standards and the law is for recreational boats

I suppose when/if I am lucky enough to afford a 26 footer plus being later model than 2019 then I will worry about it then. Doesn't apply to anything manufactured prior to Dec of 2019.
