In light of the Jim Wilde/NPS issue and verdict, do you powered canoe/freighter canoe enthusiasts register your boats and display the reg. numbers on your boat?
I never registered my Grumman 19'er/Yamaha in the decade I used it on the rivers. However, seeing the maelstrom of legal B.S. that befell Jim Wilde, I did this year. And I carried a first aid kit and fire extinguisher, as well as my normal PFDs. Our state is full of over officious LEOs of many stripes. I'd just as soon not give them an excuse to f*** with me or my boat. And those reg. numbers prominently displayed may reduce the chance of them doing so.
