                                  TITLE  67
                      STATE GOVERNMENT AND STATE AFFAIRS
                                  CHAPTER 70
                            IDAHO SAFE BOATING ACT
    67-7032.  OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY -- PRESUMPTION OF CONSENT. (1) The owner
of the vessel shall be liable for any injury or damage occasioned by the
negligent operation of it, whether the negligence consists of a violation of
the provisions of law, or in the failure to observe ordinary care in the
operation as the rules of the road require. It shall be presumed a vessel is
being operated with the knowledge and consent of the owner if, at the time of
the injury or damage, it is under the control of the owner's spouse, father,
mother, brother, sister, son, or daughter, or other immediate member of the
family.  The owner shall not otherwise be liable, however, unless the vessel
is being used with his consent, either expressed or implied.
    (2)  Nothing contained herein shall be construed to relieve any other
person from any liability which he would have otherwise had, but nothing
contained herein shall be construed to authorize or permit any recovery in
excess of injury or damage actually incurred.
    (3)  Nothing contained herein shall deprive the owner of any vessel of any
of the rights, limitations or exemptions from liability afforded such owner
under any federal statutes.
