    Default Boat capacity plate

    Trying to find out some information because I have noticed that airboats do not have a boat capacity plate on them are they exempt ? The only thing I could find was this on a google search,

    Boats exempt from having to display a capacity plate include pontoon boats sailboats, canoes, kayaks, inflatables, hydroplanes, personal watercraft, and boats considered by the Commission to be of unusual or unique design.

    If I need one where or how do I get one ? There were only 2 boats built like mine in the state by this individual.

    I don't know why they don't have them but your last statement would seem to have said it all based on your previous statements. Only 2 would seem like unique or unusual imo.

    How long is the boat? I once read that boats longer than 20 feet are not required to have capacity or max. horse power plates attached.

    I have the same problem with my boat, no name plate and the company that built her is out of business.

    At the risk of adding confusion, try this link http://uscgboating.org/safety/boatbu...ng_landing.htm
    I've not dived into this issue, so I cannot speak to it authoritatively; however, if you have more questions, I can refer you to the appropriate person with the CG. Mike (907) 463-2297
