Here's one for your list - a 60' Hatteras MY named DO IT NOW, carrying a 13' Boston Whaler with the name (in matching font) DONE DID IT. The hailing port was someplace in Texas, as I recall.

Yeah, it won't be arguing until somebody gets wrapped around the axle.

Registering the dink (Zodiac 9 footer with a 4 horse) costs me about $15 - but I'll bet I spent $100 figuring out some secure, weather-proof, decent looking way to display the numbers and annual stickers. I'm still not there. Next time I renew I'm going to bring a birthday party balloon with me and ask the registrar to show me how to display the stickers on an inflatable rubber object.

NSW Australia You can buy a 60' boat head out to sea do a lap of Australia as long as you dont go over 10Knots But if you own a 12" tinny with a 6hp motor you must have a license and the boat must be registered

And please be careful driving down the main St of Sydney you hit a kangaroo after sunset






When is a licence required NSW AUSTRALIA


The speed at which you drive your boat will determine whether you need a licence.
If you drive a powered vessel for recreational purposes on NSW waters, at a speed of 10 knots (18.5km/h) or more, you must have a boat driver licence. Ten knots is the speed at which most accelerating boats will start to plane (rise up and skim on top of the water, instead of ploughing through it).

Nope to the bit in red, you will have issues north of the NSW State border. In Queensland you need a current licence from somewhere (there is a list of acceptable international ones) if your engine is over 4.5KW. Not sure about the other States but likely to be similar. The NSW situation is weird - intended for blowboats no doubt. It might be an interesting discussion with the authorities if the 60' boat was capable of more than 10 knots.

Depends on the state in the USA. Oregon gave me a ticket for a non licensed inflatable dingy with a tiny electric trolling motor.

"Good grief. What is the tag fees on that - $30? Pay the damn thing already."

Its not the fees that are a PIA.

Our dink is simply yanked up over the wide stern platform and lashed down.

OK passing up the motor and a heavy battery is no fun ,

but the addition of all the garbage required Day Night signaling devices (inspected) fire extinguisher (inspected) and all the rest of the gov trash Required to keep me safe is a bigger PIA ..

Will probably have to reinstall the aft crane , and work out a location for the placard pile , Crew injuries , garbage dumping no discharge and the rest.

Not the ultimate in "secure" but many people put the numbers on a piece of plastic polymer (the stuff that Starboard is made of) and attach that to the grab line near the bow.

I have had no problem with that method.
Also had no problem with 'painting' numbers on the inflatable.
No issue with 'gluing' numbers on either.
And had success gluing on 'pockets' which would hold the number 'placs' themselves.

Here is something to consider. If the vessel is registered, it is compelled to be compliant with the requirements of the authority which registered it. (i.e . if it is registered in NH, which does not require a Co detector, then it does not require a CO detector when operated in CT, which does require them). HOWEVER, if there is no registration, then it is subject to the requirements of the state where it is operated.


If you're dinghy does not require registration for under 10HP in your home state, but the visiting state requires a registration, it is going to be difficult to make that argument to a LEO in the state where you're not compliant.


It matters not what is required in 48 other states. what matters is the original state and the state of operation.


Finally, for $30.00 is this really a problem. Just slap a sticker on it!!

South Australia has the same rules as many of the US states. ANY vessel with a motor requires registration, except canoes/kayaks with electric motors 0.2hp or less.

My inflatable dinghy cost AUS$43 to register plus a couple bucks for permanent markers to draw the registration numbers.

I agree with others as to not really seeing why one would choose to violate a law when the cost is so little. As to likelihood of being ticketed, which shouldn't be relevant, I'd say it's much greater than you think. If you're moving it's immediately detectable from a distance and doesn't require approaching or inspecting. I see a boat under propulsion, I see no numbers, I go ticket. No work at all, unless I see more things to add to the ticket.

Travel 1/2 day at 5 kts instead of 6.5 kts then use the savings in fuel to pay for the registration.

I've been watching this thread and find it interesting for many years I refused to license my dinghy. In WA you don't have to register it if you only use it to go to shore and back.


Well we used it to run all over the place and always got away with it because nobody checked.


Now, we have two Whalers, one in AZ and one in WA. Both are registered and have all the required equipment. The total cost is somewhere around $65-$75. That's a small price to pay for not having to worry about those chats with the water cops.


Must be I'm becoming less of a rebel in my old age!

Ain't that the truth. I have glove compartment full of warnings and citations, but I haven't chatted with a trooper in 10 years.....

One of the issues with not registering is that while the state you're from may be ok with it, states you visit may not then exempt you from their requirements. Much like is described above in Australia.

Now Algae is the dink for Seaweed, and the names go together if you think about it. I've seen others with similar, such as Wandering Star's dink was called Asteroid.

I'd never suggest T/T as a name for the auxiliary boat. I've got a list in my Log Book of interesting pairings that I've collected along the waterways...
Janice, I saw a pediatrician that towed a tender behind his sail boat. The boat was named Baby Doc, and the tender was named Little Tender Behind.
