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!!
