I posted this in the rafting forum, but I thought I'd post it here too.
Anyone know the regulations regarding registering a raft with an outboard? Can I get by without registering if it's less than 16ft (I heard this somewhere) or does any boat operated with a motor have to be registered?
See http://www.state.ak.us/dmv/reg/boat.htm it will have your answer. You must register all powered boats (including non-powered boats with auxiliary power units) used on any water of the state. (This includes all rivers, streams, and lakes, regardless of size, and all salt water within 3 miles of land.)
