Thread: Canoe with trolling motor, register?

    Default Canoe with trolling motor, register?

    I'm wondering, if you put an electric motor on a canoe, do you have to register the canoe as a powered boat?

    Shark is right.. register the canoe and your good to go..
    The State parks ticket for not registering the canoe is over 100 bucks, at least it was a couple of years ago.

    Yes you have to I had the same question and called the troopers to be sure because I was tired of all the hearsay of well it depends on what water you are on ETC. My answer from the troopers is yes you have to so I did and there have been no problems!

    The best part of being legal is if lost of stolen the hull number is now in your name and no one else can register it without some proof of ownership
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you
