Cost me $170 for a new one here good for 5 years.
Here it is not the cost but the time waiting in line at the DMV

Actually, the handle that is on the thruhull on my boat is off half the time anyway. The valve is located underneath the head sink and is located right next to the head sink drain. The PO unscrewed the retaining screw on the black water discharge to give more room on the shelf under the sink. So all I need to do is take that handle and move it it elsewhere.

15 minutes max where I live in Florida.

In Connecticut it's several hours, Thanks to the new computer system they put in 3 years ago.

I would vote against removing the handle since you're possibly going to need to find it in a hurry...

Not sure why I'd ever need to find it in a hurry.

Not required unless you are in a NDZ.......

ONLY USCG can board legally for any reason.

This guy says other agencies boardings are like an act of piracy if they have no cause.
I agree with him.

What individual boaters choose to do with this information is a personal choice. I consider boarding without consent, and in the case of law enforcement officers, without probable cause, to be an act of “piracy.” Piracy is, “an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea.” For myself, I have learned to ask, “am I obligated by law to allow you to board?” Officers know that I am not so obligated, and usually will not press the point. If they do, I do not affirmatively grant permission to non-Coast Guard agencies to board. That said, I certainly cooperate if law enforcement officers choose to board. Non-cooperation would only make things worse. Much worse.

79, it would be interesting to see the Pen State like case make it to the US Supreme Court. Why don't you finance that effort?

I was able to get a replacement drivers license by going to the NC DMV website. My license was worn a bit and some text was hard/impossible to read so I needed a replacement. The "new" license came in the mail a week or so later.

Later,
Dan

We thought we were going to have to replace the sea cock with one that locks. Groco sells an in-line shut off that can be locked. Cut, insert clamp - done. Easy Peasy.
