Yes. Since they make a distinction later on about non-motorized sailboats that are under 12 feet long, and also call out non-motorized canoes, kayaks, and rowboats, many of which will be over 12 feet long, it's pretty obvious to me anyway that what they are saying in that first sentence is you have to register all motorboats, and you have to register any sailboat, motorized or not, that's over 12 feet long.

It's not a very well worded sentence but based on the rest of the rules I believe you have to register your boat since it has a motor on it.

Well, "all motorboats" seems to cover it, but if that's not clear to you, a call or visit to the agency in your state that registers boats would be a good plan.

you didn't seemed concerned about being stopped when I discussed overpowering so why worry about registration?

especially with this in your other post...

I think it's hysterical that a guy with a 10 foot jonboat is on and doing fairly well at occupying the participants of a trawler forum...like there aren't about 5000 other types of boating forums out there that may be closer/more help...

Yes,all motorboats.That is any boat that carries a motor.It doesn't matter if it's gas,diesel,propane,or electric.I am surprised that they require sails boats over 12 feet to be reg'd.

His other boat is a Nordhavn 62. The jon boat is the dinghy to his tender.
