Thread: Rowing boat registration

  1. #1

    Default Rowing boat registration

    I've recently (2 days ago) bought a rowing boat and want to know if I need to register it to row it a/ on the bay or b/. on local lakes. It's used and the previous owner never registered as he just used on his creek, he thinks that small rowing boats are exempt. the boat is an Edon TS515, there are pictures on the website virginiarowing.com so you can see what i'm getting at. any help appreciated as i'm getting conflicting information
    Cheers

    The way I understand it, if it’s powered (outboard, trolling motor), it needs to be registered.

    Only if it has a motor...gas or electric. The same for canoes and kayaks.
    When fly fishing is outlawed, only outlaws will fly fish.
