One for my more knowledgeable FAR brethren:

 

Where does it say that you can't operate a helicopter further from shore that if the engine fails you can make it back to land. If you're wearing lifejackets etc or have floats that's different. I'm not looking for 135 ops.

 

If anyone can give a reference to FAR that it comes from I would be most appreciative. I've looked, but right now I can't find it.

 

No prizes involved for the right answer!

I'll answer my own question: Far 91.205 (B) 12. For anyone that's interested.

There is no such regulation. It is not, and has never been, required. The requirement for commercial ops was only added in the newest revision, and before that floats and life vests were only required when further than 50 miles from a landing area. If you're flying under Part 91, not a commercial flight, you can fly wherever you like, at your own risk, and the risk to the aircraft.
