They aren't even required to be documented if registered properly in the state. The exception is those over 5 tons chartered on the Great Lakes must be documented.

I think you mean the Passenger Vessel Security Act, which deals with transporting passengers from one US port to another. The Jones Act deals with cargo.

Let me cut to the chase. I wanted to do the same thing as you. I had planned to spend a year in Washington on my way north to Alaska. I'd lived in Seattle two times in my life and went to the University of Washington.

But having discovered what Twisted Tree described at length and very well, it all came down to whether I was willing to be at the mercy of bureaucrats. For me it would be a $20k roll of the dice.
No thanks.

So i will spend more time in BC and SE AK and minimize my time in WA.

60 days is a long time in the Pac NW. You will have plenty to see and do further north.
