Inflatable boat registration?
I decided to buy a 12v trolling motor for my inflatable raft. It is my understanding that I must register the boat if I add any motor.
Does anyone know for sure if this is true?

Yes. Unless it is muscle-powered, it has to be registered.

Thanks Rocky. That's what I thought. I'm getting too old for anything but horse power lately. Maybe just too lazy. I think more of the secondSly

Yes, electric, gas, or nuclear powered has to be registered.

once you register it I think you also need to display the hull numbers and state stickers? when I had an inflatable they made me put the hull numbers on a piece of plexi glass and hang it over the side so its visible, dont know if thats still the case?

I thought about a nuke, but have you seen the price? I could only afford a couple hours or so of pqwer instead of years.

Well worth the investment SLC. You like the way tungsten jigs perform? Wait till you try depleted uranium! Wink

Had it in my coffee this morning. Why do you think I'm still up at 2:30 am. Ok, it's actually spring fever, and that's no (is there an emoji for fish poo?)

I was born in the Late Holocene Epoch, and I still power my kayak around by muscles alone. Pedaling a Hobie is as easy as walking. It's just the loading and unloading that's a bit of a tester.

I've owned a float tube, a pontoon, and now a kayak. The kayak is by far the easiest to propel.
