I just put an electric trolling motor on my yak and someone said i have to register it with the state of florida. Is that true? if so how in the heck do i do that? no title of course or bill of sale seeing i bought it used. i would not be actually supprised if i do knowing uncle sam wants to tax us when he sees us haveing fun.
It "ain't" Uncle Sam.
Most states are starving for more taxes. So if you attach an electric motor to any water craft, you have to license it. Ca. has been doing this for over a decade
Ca's DMV will license any water craft without a bill of sale if you bring it to the local DMV.
So check with your local DMV or online.
Ca. has added an illegal alien fee re Asian Mussels for any watercraft. Which is a total rip off with a kayak.
Ca. will probably start licensing, aka taxing Hobie Mirage yaks.
