I was boarded last weekend in PWS, 20 miles from Whittier, and was surprised when the State Trooper asked for the Federal renewal paperwork. The boat is a federally documented vessel and did not have a state AK####. I did not think the State Troopers would ask for Federal documentation paperwork. The boat was splashed for the first time in June and I was not cited.
Just passing this along to the other GC owners who are documented.
