To the best of my knowledge, there are none. Only thing I know about is they aren't allowed in the Okeefenokee....but no motorized boats are allowed there

There aren't any noise restrictions and don't have to have a flag. Just watch the areas where the rich folks live on lakes. They tend to call the law. DNR told me, however, tey can only ask you to stay away from areas where those people live, they can't actually cite you for it

That's how our group always is. Slow down for other boaters, kayaks, etc, Try to keep the noise down around homes. We try our best not to rock the boat, so to speak. Never had any trouble so far

All Ga boating requirements apply to A/B. Paddle,life preservers, fire extinguisher, whistle and yes no flag, but not a good idea as well as mufflers.

And Tim you can have motorized In okeefenoke, but only 10 hp.

Knew it was something like that. There ARE a handful of places that are trolling motor only or as you said, very low HP. Either way, it's no airboat. lol Juliette used to be 20 hp or less, but I heard they repealed that.
