Boat Licensing?

7 posts in this topic

Ok guys, I finally bought a boat. The only thing is I'm waiting for some of the paper work to get the boat licensed. My question is, can I take the boat out while waiting for all of this? What things do I all need if I can take the boat out. I bought the boat the other day, i have a bill of sale. Is there some kind of grace period that I can take the boat out on the water? The only problem is that the guy didn't have the boat licensed yet for this year. Any info would be great!

No registration, no use of boat. You will have to wait until monday to register it, only a registrar can do it.

Don't risk to use it this weekend, there will be many officers on patrol, even ashore, and an expire sticker, which is a big colored stamp with a big number on it, it is very visible from distance, you will get fined.

Used may be different. When they're new you can run around all you want with no stickers, etc. as long as you carry some proof of ownership while the paperwork is processed. The dealer took care of this for me but I could still use the boat until I got my reg. sticker....just like a car.

if you buy it from a dealer, the dealer is going to givve you a 21 day permit for that boat so you can use it untill you get the tags for the boat. If you have it from a private party, you have to put the tags on it before you can get it wet.

That's what I was worried about. I guess I'll just have to wait to get her out on the water. I bought from a private party so I'll just have to wait. Until then I'll just get everything ready to go. Thanks guys for the info.

DNR CO's, and sheriff's deputies, are always looking at a boats registration sticker while on water patrol.Getting caught on the water will result in a citation, and an escort back to shore.Bill of sale from a private party will not do it.Registration sticker, and boat numbers, are like the license plate, and tabs, on your vehicle. Same results will happen- no different if you were to drive your car without current tabs,license plate, or 21 day sticker, and get pulled over for it.

when I bought mine it had old stickers on it. the P.O. applied for new stickers the day I bought it and was told they were going to be mailed out to him. He told me he would bring them over (lives next door) when they showed up. I went to the DMV the next morning and changed the registration. the guy there told me I could put it in the water today but make sure I had my recipt IN MY POCKET anytime its on the water before the sticker showed up. so yes, unless you have been to the DMV already, dont drop it in.

and yes, they are watching, In fact on saturday I watched a Ramsey County Sheriff write my friend a ticket for expired tabs on his truck at a metro lake launch. He hadnt even pulled all the way in to the parking lot before the Sheriff was waving him down.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
