Default Paddle Boat Registration Requirements

As discussed on page 3 in the "No Cheating Please" thread I came to find out that Ohio and 7 other States (2006 data) require registration of paddle boats including canoes and kayaks.

http://www.alamocityrivermen.org/pad...gistration.htm

Upon further research I found efforts in Texas, Florida and other States to include paddle boats in their boat registration requirements.

Requiring registration of paddle boats will make the States DNR wallets fatter, even though these boats do not contribute to any pollution to the waters.

What are your thoughts on requiring paddle boats to be registered?

If it's registered, you have a much greater chance of recovering it if it's stolen (or lost, washed away in a storm, etc.). And less chance of it being stolen because the potential thief could not register it.

What are we talking about here, $10 ?

Chances of recovering a stolen kayak, canoe or paddleboat are nil. The cops are not going to spend time looking for it. If it falls off the back of the truck on the highway you might get a phone call. Otherwise thinking that registration means Law Enforcement will hunt fot it is dreaming. LE is too busy with land crimes to bother.

There are a lot of 30'++ boats stolen that no one ever heard about again..

The objective of registration is simply to collect money for the state.

I had a car hit me on the road. I got his tag # reported it to police. I am still waiting 20 yrs later. I had a business broken into, I am still waiting for them to capture the crooks. On and on..

Ye put too much faith on the GOV.

My understanding of boat registration is that up to last year if you had it on a privately owned lake you did not need to register. But then again..

I agree with solarfry. The chances of recovering a kayak are probably nil. We have 4 kayaks and I don't think they have a registration number or serial number etc. that would identify them like a vin number does for a boat or car.

The registration stickers could easily be removed by a thief.
