typically if the vessel is over 12 feet long, you need to register. even though there is no gas motor.
Do i need to register my kayak if it has a trolling motor on it
It really depends on the state that you are in. There are different rules and regulations. In Kentucky, where I live, you have to license "anything" with a trolling motor no matter what (inflatable boat, canoe, etc.) It seems kind of silly though!
If you bass fish or have seen a bass boat, you have probably noticed the small propeller on a pole in the front of the boat. This is the trolling motor.Trolling motors - Not just for trollingTrolling is the art of covering a large amount of water in a short time. Basically, the boat moves across the water, dragging angler's lures through the water. Various lures at various depths can be used but the principle is the same, fish as much area as possible.A trolling motor is an ancillary motor to the large one that fully propels the boat. Normally at the front of the boat, the trolling motor is used for slow presentations. Crappie fishermen use trolling motors in this way. Since they use multiple rods with lures at several depths, a trolling motor allows them to fish slowly and methodically.The trolling motor for bass anglersBass anglers and in particular tournament anglers, make heavy use of the trolling motor. The trolling motor is not used to troll, but rather to move the boat from location to location slowly and silently. Bass anglers fishing tournaments must cover large amounts of water to be successful The trolling motor allows them to do that. Since the trolling motor is electric, it does not make noise that will spook fish, another key element for the tournament angler.Going where angels fear to tread - Getting back thereThe large outboard on the back of the boat is great for navigating wide, deep, open bodies of water, but what about that honey hole in the very back of the lake? You know the one that is choked up with vegetation, stumps and shallow water? Getting there with the outboard is impossible if not dangerous, but the tournament purse may lie on your ability to get to that area. Good thing you have a trolling motor.The trolling motor will get you into tight spots that the large motor cannot. Shallow water, stumps or vegetation can be trouble for the big outboard motor, but the trolling motor can work right through it. If the trolling motor does get choked on weeds, cleaning it is a snap since you only have to lift it out of the water.
A backtroller is a person who fishes by backtrolling, trolling with a boat's motor in reverse, therefore minimizing the movement of a boat.
McCullom Lake is motorized, but limits the horsepower of a motorboat to only 7.5 h.p. Awesome fishing, you just need a small boat with a small motor (or a large trolling motor).
If it were me, I would purchase a 55 lb thrust motor and it would be a Motorguide. A 55 lb thrust motor will be a 12 volt system. Beyond 55 lb you'd need to move to a 24 volt system that would require two 12 volt batteries for the trolling motor. A 24 volt motor would offer around 80 to 90 lbs of thrust. Unless you're going to use your boat in heavy currents or strong winds, I'd opt for a 55 lb motor.
That may be a standard practice among boaters you have seen, and there might even be a reason behind it. But I have seen countless boats with trolling motors on the stern next to the main engine, and they were on the port side just as often as the starboard.
No, its not required by law, in most states. You'll have to check with your department of motor vehicles where you register the boat. You do have to have a title and registration for boat and trailer because of them being on the roads.
The length of a motor boat is not restricted
You will need the weight of your boat in lbs, the weight of the people & kit it is expevted to carry and then divide by 70. This will give you the thrust in lbs. For example a total weight of 2500lbs divided by 70 = 35.71, round this up to the nearest whole number is 36. Therefore a trolloing motor of 36lbs thrust is required. Bryan1324
Georgia does not require boat insurance Its not required by law, in most states. You'll have to check with your department of motor vehicles where you register the boat. You do have to have a title and registration for boat and trailer because of them being on the roads. If you find that you need an insurance policy you can get a quote
Motor Boat Cruise ended in 1993.
Motor Boat Cruise was created in 1957.
My boat is a 1996 Four Winns Jet boat, and I am replacing a freeze break motor.
Look at the shipping register
Back trolling is a method of trolling from the bow of the the boat (rather than stern) where the boat is moving with the current, but slower than the current. The bait is norrmally rigged in a suspended state with some weight/diver below it (similar to a drop shotted configuration). The bait is therefore pulled slightly by the faster current giving a natural presentation while allowing the angler to move in the direction of the current.
This fishing equipment can be expensive and very helpful. I do not own a boat and don't go fishing much, but I would like to get a good deal on something like this. You can buy them online at sites such as www.cabellas.com, www.walmart.com, and www.basspro.com.
how to take cover off 1979 mercury boat motor
You should check with your local boating officer or Conservation officer first, because the law may vary from state to state. In Indiana, you must have a valid driver's license to operate a motor boat over 10 hp. There is no age limit for anything under 10 hp.

where do you find the vin on a boat
get in your boat, turn the motor on
The stern of a boat is the rearmost portion of the boat or ship. The stern usually has a tiller or other steering device that helps the boat turn, The stern might also have the motor of the boat if the boat has an outboard motor. By tilting this motor from one side to another it helps the boat turn. The propeller in this area also makes the boat move through the water.

Yes. A motor doesn't guarantee that a boat cannot sink.
